No doubt thanks to the dubious pricing strategies of carriers for 3G/4G tablets, 90% of tablets sold in the U.S. are only used over Wi-Fi networks, notes analyst Chetan Sharma. The failure of 3G/4G tablets to take off hurts both carriers such as VZ, T, and S, and chipmakers such as QCOM. It's also noted smartphones made up 65% of Q4 phone sales in the U.S., compared with roughly 1/3 of global phone sales.
