MWC 2013 Barcelona Ericsson

“By the end of 2013, more than 50% of phone shipments will be smartphones, driven by more affordable models,” said Ericsson President and CEO Hans Vestberg, who was speaking at a press conference at Mobile World Congress 2013 currently under progress in Barcelona. “As we have the internet in our pockets, our virtual and real worlds are coming together. Online interaction enriches our living, working and entertainment and breaks down barriers of time and place. By the end of 2013, there will be more mobile internet users than fixed internet users.”
