Android No 2 Operating System

Created: Wednesday, 05 October 2011 13:47

Android to Become No. 2 Worldwide Mobile Operating System in 2010 and Challenge Symbian for No. 1 Position by 2014 says Gartner.

The mobile operating system (OS) worldwide market will be dominated by Symbian and Android, as the two OSs will equate to 59.8 percent of mobile OS sales by 2014, according to Gartner, Inc.
Gartner's announce Symbian will remain at the top of worldwide OS ranking due to Nokia's volume and the push into more mass market value points. By the end of the forecast period, the top spot will be contested with Android, which will be at a very similar share level.
Communication service providers marketing and vendor service support for Android-based smartphones will drive the product to become the second-largest platform, following Symbian, by end of 2010. This is almost two years earlier than Gartner previously predicted.
The principal research analyst at Gartner, Robert Cozza says 'The worldwide mobile OS market is dominated by four players: Symbian, Android, Research In Motion and iOS.' Launches of updated operating systems such as Apple iOS 4, BlackBerry OS 6, Symbian 3 and Symbian 4, and Windows Phone 7 will help maintain strong growth in smartphones in 2010 and 2011 and encourage innovation. However, we believe that market share in the OS space will consolidate around a few key OS providers that have the most support from CSPs and developers and strong brand awareness with consumer and enterprise customers."
