Worldwide HTML5 phone sales will surge from 33.60 crore units in 2011 to 100 crore units in 2013, a new research from Strategy Analytics reported. HTML5 has quickly become a high-growth technology that will help smartphones, feature phones, tablets, notebooks, desktop PCs, televisions and vehicles to converge through cloud services.

"Growth for HTML5 phones is being driven by robust demand from multiple hardware vendors and software developers in North America, Europe and Asia who want to develop rich media services across multiple platforms, including companies like Adobe, Apple, Google and Microsoft. We define an HTML5 phone as a mobile handset with partial or full support for HTML5 technology in the browser, such as the Apple iPhone 4S," said Neil Shah, analyst, Strategy Analytics.

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, revealed Neil Mawston, executive director, Strategy Analytics. "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."

Despite surging growth of HTML5 phone sales, the research firm believes that HTML5 is still a relatively immature technology. HTML5 currently has limited APIs and feature-sets to include compared with native apps on platforms such as Android or Apple iOS.

"It will require several years of further development and standards-setting before HTML5 can fully mature to reach its potential as a unified, multiplatform content-enabler."
