    BEIJING, Sept. 6 /PRNewswire-Asia/ --, one of China's leading B2B search platforms with more than 30 B2B industry websites to its name, reports smartphones will become the 3G market mainstream.

    With smartphones cost gradually declining, and the function improving, along with portability, Himfr reports that the smartphone will become the mainstream in the future 3G market.

    Himfr predicts that by 2011, smartphone users will beat out data card users 4 to 3. In the second quarter of 2009, smartphone accounted for 16% of the global market share, increasing to 23 percent by 2010; the smartphone has gradually become the mainstream of the 3G market.

    Himfr believes that although smartphones save power with frequent network exchange dormancy, the utilization rate has increased overall. Importantly, 8% smartphones usage brought 55% of the signaling load, that is to say the development of smartphones brought a signaling surge. On the other hand, 8% of smartphone usage also brought 90 percent of the traffic. The high strength of the signaling impact changes the telephone patterns, and it seems that intelligent terminals could bring a strong impact on network performance.

    Himfr analyzes that 2009 global mobile phone sales growth reached 6%, while mobile phone sales growth was 31%, which is five times more than the overall growth of the mobile phones. Himfr forecasts that 2010 smartphone growth rate will be seven times more than the mobile phone growth rate.
