these figures are hilarious. android will begin to die out by the end of the year and by 2015 their market share will be about 15% - 20%. Prediction
ios has the possibility to expire
it seems that android and wp7 will the one to manage to continue
anyways at the end of the day all that you will need to do with your phone is to call and send messages that's it
for older symbians and other lowend phones, well they can survive in the asian/african market but they will be rare to find
blackberry os seems going to be able to load android apps.
how can blackberry os loose out?
Only if Windows mobile is able to load android apps and the W8 or the later is going to be compatible to Windows software for desktop. then, i see how w8 can climb such high.
these figures can be true. the sad story will go to symbian
goodbye symbian...but no worries cause like what the old saying goes "once a queen, always a queen..."
cheers for wp7 and android lets see whose kingdom will prevail
well for ios and bb .. personally they're not my personal faviorites lol
or to be fair, lets imagine the movie the chronicles of narnia
the kings and queens of the mobile world
king android , king wp7 , queen ios and queen bb
i would love to know what planet these analysts live certainly not in the real world or should i say planet earth.
What about samsung's "BADA" OS..? and what if nokia puts 1 Ghz processor, 1GB RAM and SVGA res screen in symbian powered smartphone with new UI.. am just predicting.. Because it's not impossible for nokia anything can happen..
im currently using android but these predictions are no different than old ladies sitting there with their crystal balls lol
there's too many market factors to take into considerations, & of course what WP7 does with itself, so don't know what the basis of these forecasts is really but, seems pointless to me.
Guys, Guys - Pay attention.
The market share isn't because of how "good" the OS is. It's all about the different devices that the OS will run on.
Remember that Android will be number 1 because it can run on low, middle and high end phones. In UK you can get an Android phone for under £100GBP. iOS are ONLY on iPhone's and they are at the top end of the market price.
Currently Windows Phone 7 needs a 1GHz processor. That limits it's phones to the High End. But once time goes on and 1GHz becomes cheaper thenm it can go into more phones.
Interesting idea, though I doubt it due to 2 reasons:
1. MS isn't famous with innovations, and that is what's needed in order to top up the market nowadays.
2. I suspect that smartphone market will decrease in favor of tablets. Or at least we'll see devices with screen sizes ~5.5-6" being sold as high-end smartphones (you can count them as tablet-smartphone combination).
How can anyone even take away this information and believe it? These are all predictions. There are too many factors which can drastically alter these numbers.
This is just wishful thinking. People don't even know what's going on at the WWDC this year and your talking about 2015. How do they know that WP7 won't fall apart by the end of 2012 (like the world suppose to). You can't predict these things.
Jerry1ken, 30 Mar 2011Wow . . . . . . and exactly what will drive WP& sales again?The Nokia-Microsoft deal.
TSH, 30 Mar 2011Seems pretty reasonable, especially about Symbian. Keep in mind though, this is about smartpho... more67% is not the market share, but the average annual growth rate of the market share...
symbian is being poisoned so its dying. just give symbian new ui and take away stupid hardware (resistive screen and fixedfocus camera) then it will lead for the next decade.
well, at least its fair competition..
Seems pretty reasonable, especially about Symbian. Keep in mind though, this is about smartphones. It would be interesting to see what a similar analysis would show for the future of "dumb" phones.
I'm not convinced that WP7 will reach 67% market share though ... I reckon maybe as high as 50%. Which is still a dominating position, but 67% seems a bit high.
