Here is interesting news, the guys from cellular-news inform us that the South Africa handset sales will grow up 17% in 2010. Good news, right?
And it also make a lot of sense if you consider the fact that the Mobile Trends and Predictions tell us 2010 will be a great year for smartphones overall.
Alex Spektor, Analyst at Strategy Analytics, said, “We forecast mobile handset sales in South Africa to grow by a healthy 17 percent annually to 11 million units in 2010. South Africa is the fourth largest handset market in Africa. Growth is being driven by post-recession economic recovery and the feel-good factor generated by the country’s hosting of the FIFA World Cup soccer tournament, one of the world’s most popular sporting events.”
