One billion HTML5-ready mobile phones will be sold worldwide in 2013, says research

The latest research from Strategy Analytics predicts that sales of mobile phones able to handle HTML5 - the latest version of the language used to construct web sites - will grow by 365% between 2011 and 2016. In fact, worldwide HTML5 phone sales are expected to increase from 336 million units this year to 1 billion units in 2013.

The company defines an HTML5 phone as a mobile handset with partial or full support for HTML5 technology in the browser.

Neil Mawston, Executive Director at Strategy Analytics, said “HTML5 has quickly become a high-growth technology that will help smartphones, feature phones, tablets, notebooks, desktop PCs, televisions and vehicles to converge in the future. HTML5 will be a pivotal technology in the growth of a multi-screen, 4G LTE cloud that is emerging for mobile operators, device makers, car manufacturers, component vendors and Web app developers. With its potential to transcend some of the barriers faced by native apps, such as cross-platform usability, HTML5 is a market that no mobile stakeholder can afford to ignore,”
