I would have expected this to happen sooner.  But then again – compared to how long feature phones have been around vs how long smartphones have been around, it all still happened rather quickly. According to NPD DisplaySearch, by 2017 82% of the phone market will be held by Smartphones.

In some categories, we even recorded a tripling of the cost for an average mobile gamer.” Needless to say, marketing costs naturally increase when markets mature, however during the summer the average CPI broke the $2 barrier, and it’s been growing ever since. While the first couple of Quarters for 2013 looked ok, (as far as CPI being on par with...
