Number of teens with smartphones surge - The Boston Globe

Another market segment in which RIM is losing share

As smartphones become ubiquitous and more affordable, they are leaping into the hands of teens, and mobile makers have taken notice. The number of teens with smartphones nearly tripled to 4.8 million in April from 1.7 million during the same period in 2009, according to market research firm ComScore.

Currently 28.7 percent of teen cellphone users carry smartphones, and analysts expect that more than 50 percent will have one next year.
