China ships 347 mln smartphones in Jan-Sept, Sina says

The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology said some 347 million smartphones were shipped during the nine months to September, accounting for 74.3 percent of total handset sales in China during the period, news portal reported Wednesday. For the first half of 2013, smartphone sales grew by a quarter year on year. Despite the fast growth, only about 25 percent of mobile phone users in China have a smartphone, much lower than the average of 50 percent in developed countries, suggesting that a significant portion of the smartphones were exported, the report said.
