To control the global market for smartphones, both Google and Apple are in an intense competition for succeeding against each other. Whether they will succeed is a question that a research and analyst firm Gartner is trying to answer through making some predictions which are quite surprising.
According to its report, Microsoft Windows Phone 7 will have a better market share by 2015 than Apple iOS. Android will take over almost 50% of the mobile smartphone market in the next two years. The recent predictions report by Gartner says that Android will increase its market share from this year’s 38.5% to 49.2% in the next, which is astonishingly more than double its market share of 22.7% from the last year.
Same fascinating inferences are about iOS that it will also pace up its market share this year at 19.4%, but it will go down to 18.9% in 2012 and to 17.2% by 2015. On the other hand, Windows Phone will leap up from 5.6% this year to 10.8% in the coming year and will stretch to 19.5% in 2015. BlackBerry is predicted to have a slow decline by falling from this year’s 13.4% to 11.1% in 2015. These are all the research estimates from the firm Gartner.
