Massive Growth Predicted for Smartphones - Apple, RIM Leading the Way

Scary numbers from analysts at RBC Capital Markets. There are a lot variables in this and the analysis assumes flawless execution from Apple, RIM, Palm, and other smartphone makers, but the trends is clear.
Analyst: Apple to Sell 80+ Million iPhones in 2012, Snag 5.7% of Total Mobile Phone Market
Apple's existing smartphone unit market share of 10.8% is expected to grow to 16.3% in 2012, but that growth would occur alongside expected growth of the smartphone share of the overall mobile market from ~10% to 35% over that time. The result is that Apple's overall mobile market share would grow from 1.1% in 2008 to 5.7% in 2012 on unit growth from 13.7 million in 2008 to 82.1 million in 2012.
