  1.    #1 is projecting that 40 new phones will be released in the next 6 months. The listing is simplified into an xls spreadsheet in the zip attachment with 32 key facts about each including Dates, screen sizes, carriers, memory, GHz, etc.

    Note that these are expected and rumored specs but this site is amazingly accurate in their information. It is often based on the chip orders from OEM's and sometimes press releases.

    Android dominates expected new phone introductions with 20 out of 40 expected phones. Windows, led by Windows Mobile 7 is next with 11. Nokia still has a good presence with 6 phones. BlackBerry is expected to release 2 phones and Apple is expected to finally release the long-awaited Verizon iPhone 4.

    HTC, Samsung, Dell, and Nokia are expected to lead the way for manufacturers with at least 6 phones each. Archos, LG, and Motorola each should have at least 2 new offering in the next six months as well.

    We know that display sizes are on the rise and the road ahead keeps pointing towards bigger screens. Clock speeds seem to be continuing on a pace to double speeds every 18 months or shorter. We know that chip makers are sampling CPU's at 1.2, 15. and 2.0 GHz. Dual Cores and even Quad Cores are rumored.

    If you still like the feel of a real physical keyboard, you are in luck. 11 of these 40 up-comers are expected to have built-in keyboards.

    The driving feature in the market over the next year is expected to be HD and cameras. So we can expect higher resolution and nearly universal auto focus and digital zoom. Optical zoom is not expected on any of these models near-term. This is trend is driving carriers towards higher-bandwidth 4G and LTE networks. As many as 10 of these phones may be 4G or LTE enabled.

    The one thing we know for sure is that the next 6 months look to be a very exciting time.

    They are quickly becoming the smartphone KING.
    They have been since ~2005 (not including Nokia). They've made the vast majority of WM phones, they built many of the Treos, and they build most models of Android. They've been cornering this market for quite a while - only RIM still competes with them on raw numbers.

    Note that we are on track for 80 new phones in the next 12 months.

    Many more will be announced at CES in January. I bet a new family of phones from HP might be announced then.
