The number of active smart devices in Vietnam has surged by 266 percent since January 2012, making the country the world's second fastest growing market of smartphones and tablets, a report said.

Columbia topped the world with a growth rate of 278 percent, according to the report recently posted on the website (blog.flurry.com) of Flurry, an international mobile application analysis provider.

It said other top five markets were Turkey, Ukraine, and Egypt, adding that they compiled figures from countries that had a minimum of half a million devices as of January last year.

China ranked sixth with the rate of 209 percent, even though in another survey, it has knocked off the US to become the world's top country for active Android and iOS smartphones and tablets, according to Flurry.

The service provider estimated that by the end of February 2013, China will have 246 million devices compared to 230 million in the US.

Flurry said the US will not retake the lead from China, given the huge difference in the countries' populations China has over 1.3 billion people while the US only has about 310 million. 

For the second survey, Flurry tracked over 2.4 billion anonymous, aggregated application sessions per day across more than 275,000 applications around the world.

The company estimates that the method reliably measures the activity of 90% of the world's smart devices.
