BREAKING- GFK Says Smartphone Sales to Reach Nearly 1B in 2013

At the opening of the IFA tech trade show in Berlin, analyst firm, GFK says that smartphone sales around the world will reach nearly 1 billion units in 2013, according to CNET.

This would represent a year over year increase of 37 percent. Along with smartphones, 3D TVs shipments should top 59 million–an impressive 104 percent year over year increase on a device that many said was being left for dead. Tablets will see shipments of 215 million units for a 69 percent year over year increase.

This comes in the wake of yesterday’s Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) that it would hold an event on September 10 and September 11 in China.
