Smartphone penetration breaks 50% barrier in the U.S.

Data collected from telco companies and network operators shows that smartphone penetration has broken the 50 percent barrier in the United States, with these devices now outnumbering their feature phone brethren for the first time.
Samsung is the market leader in terms of number of handsets shipped, but Apple came up trumps in terms of revenue. While shipping only 6 percent of mobile devices, Apple hauled in over 70 percent of total mobile device revenue. Not too shabby.
