According to a new Gartner research report ,
Android is set to emerge as most poplar mobile OS
worldwide by 2011. It is also said to grab 49% of
worldwide market share by 2012. Even IDC’ s recent survey reveals the same. Sales of Open OS devices is set to reach half a billion
by 2012 and to cross 1 billion mark by 2015. Price
of Android phones would reduce gradually and
more mid range Android phones to emerge due to
the competition. Average selling price of devices to
reach $300 or below that by 2015. Even though there is a slight decrease in market
share after 2011, iOS to stay as second biggest
platform till 2014, that is already popular in the
emerging markets like the U.S. and Western Europe. Market for Symbian phones would decrease
gradually, since Nokia would concentrate on
Microsoft’ s Windows phones. Microsoft to stay at second place with 19.5% market share, with
Android in the lead with 48.8% market share by
2015. RIM would face steady decrease in the market
share but would manage to grab 11% market
share by 2015. The sales of tablets would increase after 2011 and
market for tablets would see steady increase in the
future. People who already own a smart phone will
purchase a tablet that shares same OS with their
phone, that allows them sync the content between
the devices easily. Source
