Windows Phone to Beat Out Android in 2015May 7, 2011 1 Comment
According to market research firm Pyramid Research, smartphone sales will almost double by 2015. Right now smartphone sales count for 27% of all cellphone sales. They are estimating that in 4 years it will jump to 53%. Leading that charge? They say that it will be Android and Windows Phone. To top it off they are putting their money on Windows Phone beating out Android by then as well and becoming the top selling smartphone platform.
They really donâ€™t go into so much detail but I am betting that a lot of it has to do with the Microsoft â€“ Nokia deal.
â€˜â€The main drivers of the demand in the developed markets will be the launches of a number of flagship high-end devices and new features and technologies. However, inexpensive smartphone models, particularly those from Huawei and ZTE, also will be in high demand in some of the richest Western European, Asian and North American markets.â€ Finally, Bokun notes that while smartphone sales will be driven in large part by Android over the next four years, Microsoftâ€™s Windows Phone platform will overtake Android and other operating systems to become the top-selling smartphone platform in the world in 2015.â€™
With a few analyst already betting on Windows Phone for the next few years. Pyramid Research is the first to claim that Windows Phone will be the top dog ahead of Googleâ€™s Android.
I believe that Microsoft has all the tools and we have the best community in place to make that happen.
