If you’ve been lucky enough to get an invite for the OnePlus 2 and you live in North America, then listen up. OnePlus has confirmed that shipments to the U.S. and Canada will be delayed by 2-3 weeks due to “production schedules.”


International Data Corporation (IDC) released it’s quarterly report on worldwide tablet shipments Tuesday. The report states that the data tracking agency has lowered its expected forecast for growth in the tablet sector, which includes Android, iOS, and Windows tablets.

Tablet shipments are now expected to reach 221.3 million units this year, which is down from the agency’s earlier forecast of 227.4 million units. This new forecast is still 53.5 percent higher than last year’s unit shipment levels, however.


Worldwide smartphones shipments reached a whopping 251.4 million units during the third quarter of 2013, up 45% from the 172.8 million units sold during the same quarter last year, and 81.3% of them were running Android. The iPhone’s share fell to 13.4%, while Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform reached 4.1% — an improvement over last year’s 2.1% share.


The Sony Xperia Z may be struggling to compete with the Galaxy S4 in many markets, but in Japan, it’s a big seller, and its popularity has helped Sony’s smartphone sales grow. The Japanese company today revealed its fiscal Q1 2013 earnings, which include 9.6 million smartphone shipments — up from 7.4 million in Q1 2012.


The Samsung Galaxy S4 has reportedly surpassed 20 million sales following its release just over two months ago. In comparison, it took the handset’s predecessor, the Galaxy S III, 100 days to reach this milestone, and it was Samsung’s fastest-selling smartphone to date.
