In the smartphone business, selling one million devices is considered a major feat. The figures and quotes below are intended to put all of it into perspective…:
Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEI) today announced that the cumulative worldwide sell-in units of PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) handheld entertainment system (PSP-1000, 2000 and 3000 series) reached a total of 50 million units(*1) as of January 2009.
* Total LTD shipments of Nintendo DS hardware were 96.22 million worldwide, along with more than 533 million games.
* Total LTD Wii shipments reached nearly 45 million worldwide, along with over 312 million games.
So much about smartphone growth by taking market share away from competitors. IMHO, the company which manages to break out of the traditional niche will be king – what do you think?
