The latest interim update to the Ericsson Mobility Report highlights the continued rapid growth of smartphones and connectivity.

In Q4 2013, 109 million new mobile subscriptions were added. Total mobile subscriptions up to, and including, Q4 2013 were around 6.7 billion. 40 million new LTE subscriptions were added during Q4 2013.

The report shows that close to 60% of all mobile phones sold in Q4 2013 were smartphones, compared to around 45 percent in Q4 2012. The report also shows that data traffic grew 70% between Q4 2012 and Q4 2013.
