Pyramid Research Corrects Us All: Windows Phone Will Beat Android by 2013May 11, 2011 No Comments
A few days ago, I wrote an article stating that Pyramid Research was placing their bets on Windows Phone 7. We stated that they were guessing that by 2015 Windows Phone would overtake Android and take the No. 1 spot in the mobile world. They say thatÂ we and others were wrongâ€¦.
They are stating that Windows Phone will edge out Android and become number 1 by 2013. That is a bold statement and only giving Windows Phone 2 years to become the powerhouse that we know it will be.
â€˜After we have published our global findings from our Q1 smartphone forecasts, a number of tech bloggers, journalists, amateur telecom fans, people passionate about their own phones and others picked up on the very last sentence of our prÃ©cis: â€œBy 2015, Windows Phone will establish itself as the leader in the smartphone OS space.â€
Some people have misinterpreted our statement, thinking that Windows Phone (WP) will establish its leadership in 2015. As you can see from Exhibit 1, we actually believe that this will happen much earlier â€“ as early as 2013. Some of you loved this projection and agreed with it, others argued that the potential margin of error was too large, and still others disregarded it. While I respect all the opinions, this blog is mostly aimed at readers who want to understand better how we came to the projection.â€™
Most of their ideology behind these claims are backed mostly by the Nokia – Microsoft deal and I couldn’t agree with them more. The article itself is a great read and you should definitely take a lookTags: Android, Apple, Blackberry, Google, IOS, Nokia, Pyramid Research, symbian, Windows Phone, windows phone 7, WP7News
