Windows Phone 7 Predicted To Beat Apple iPhone
Looking at the smartphone market today, it is hard to believe that Microsoft’s still-brand-new smartphone platform will become the second largest within four years. But that’s exactly the story IDC is selling.
This year, Android will own the market, with 39.5%. Second is Symbian at 20.9%. Third is iOS at 15.7%. Fourth is BlackBerry with 14.9%. Fifth is Windows Phone 7 and Windows Mobile with 5.5%. “Others” bring up the rear, with about 3.5%. (“Others” most likely consists of HP’s webOS, Linux, et al.)
