According to Canalys, India has surpassed the US as the world's second largest smartphone market. It's not really surprising if you think about it since India does have a population of over 1.3 billion, but it does go to show that India isn't going to remain an underdeveloped country for long. Manufacturers have got to be foaming at the mouth to tap this growing market. Welcome to the digital world India.

"This growth comes as a relief to the smartphone industry. Doubts about India’s market potential are clearly dispelled by this result," said Canalys Research Analyst Ishan Dutt. "There are close to 100 mobile device brands sold in India, with more vendors arriving every quarter.

They only nearly have 4 times our population. No reason they should overtake us.
