    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
