The craze for smartphones is reflected in the numbers. In the third quarter of 2011, IDC estimates that smartphone shipment to India market grew by 21.4 per cent, and Android overtook Symbian to emerge as the top platform in India.
A smartphone is defined by dual core processors, AMOLED screens, high definition video and camera quality, battery size, data storage capacity and apps. With enough computing power to handle most of the functionality of the typical information worker, a smartphone purchase is not an easy choice.
What needs to be evaluated closely is the ease with which the user can manage email and multiple inboxes, use text messages to communicate, check the latest posts on social networking sites, search for important business news items and plan meetings on their smartphone.
