As the high end of the smartphone market becomes saturated, all of the growth will come from the low end.
A report today from Taiwanese Digitimes shows some explosive estimates for $150 and cheaper, contract free Android phones. Specifically, the paper says it expects to see 20-25 million entry level Android devices ship in 2011, up from 2.5-3 million in 2010.
Most of those who can afford a $400-$700 smartphone have already purchased a device. However, as smartphones go down in price to where high-end feature phones are priced today, traditional feature-phone buyers will move into the smartphone camp.
Google (GOOG) is currently activating more than 300,000 devices a day or about 10 million a month.
