Smartphones 'will continue to be popular'15 December 2011 09:32:01
SD cards look set to remain popular among consumers as more smartphones are launched on to the market.
Dominic Sunnebo, global consumer insight director at research firm Kantar Worldpanel, pointed out that there are now more than 100 available handsets using the Google Android operating system.
He made his comments in the wake of a report from comScore, which revealed that Android now has a 44.8 percent share of the smartphone market.
"What Android's managing to do is convert people from feature phones over to the smartphone market - and I think pricing plays a key part in that," Mr Sunnebo commented.
He suggested the operating system has succeeded by offering consumers "the right functionality at the right prices".
Given the ongoing popularity of Android people may want to purchase the SanDisk 8GB Micro SD (SDHC) Card - Class 4, which provides a large amount of storage space and is designed to handle larger files.
