China Tops U.S. As World's Largest Smart Device Market

This may come as a shock to some but China, having over one billion more people than the U.S., is now the world's largest market for smart devices.

A year after becoming the fastest-growing market for smart devices, China is expected to account for 246 million active Android and iOS smartphones and tablets at the end of February, compared with 230 million in the U.S., according to mobile analytics firm Flurry. That will reverse January's rankings, in which the U.S. held the top spot with 222 million smart devices compared with China's 221 million.
