China now has more tablets and smartphones than the US



After becoming the world’s leading manufacturer of goods and largest emitter of carbon dioxide, China can add world’s leading consumer of mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) to its trophy case.

“By the end of February 2013, China will have 246 million devices compared to 230 million in the U.S.,” says mobile analytics company Flurry, which estimates that its survey covers more than 90% of the world’s “smart devices.”

3. That's what happens when you have nearly four times as many people

Once their economy improves for them, they start to outbuy you when it comes to consumer junk.

6. As China became more affluent, I think this was bound to happen.

 

It would be very difficult for the United States to maintain a lead in anything over a nation that has a population over 4 times larger.


A better statistic might have been the percentage of tablet and smartphone users in the general population.
