Numbers indicate Android will soon be number two platform

The study has projections for the remainder of 2010, as well as the years 2011-2014. Other mobile platforms such as Apple’s iOS and RIM’s BlackBerry platform are projected to decline slightly by 2014. The forthcoming Windows Phone 7 OS isn’t expected to last, as market share is projected to drop under 4% by 2014.
Do you see Windows Phone 7 lasting with tough competition like Android and iOS? Can Android catch up to Symbian by the year 2014 in market share? Will RIM hang in there? These are all just projections of course, and could very well change. Take a look at the chart and give us your opinion.

No shock here, as SYMBIAN has zero pull in the U.S. and ANDROID is a far more verstaile phone - app and network-wise - you can leave AT&T and get the same quality ANDROID phone with another network....Android apps, such as lagfix and voodoo lagfix ...SGS unlock...etc....make the CAPTIVATE excellent...

I don't think this is based on U.S. only. These are world wide figures. And while the U.S. market is very important, Symbian has remained #1 without it. Has Symbian lost share due to increasing competition? Yes. Has Symbian managed to keep it's lead despite this? Yes. And you have one thing wrong, my friend: Symbian is far more versatile than android. Remember: Symbian has many carrier deals abroad. More so than android.

Most impressive is the IOS for getting a good chunk of the pie when it only has the iphone.

I know my friend told me that iphones the best phone and i asked him why. He said "because its an iPhone" they brainwash people. and even my incredible with 1 bar beat his 5 bar iphone in speed. He also thinks his 3gs is better than the droid incredible. People are stupid.

You are so right people are brainwashed.I'll be honest I think Android will be number one before that.When Gingerbread and Honeycomb are release in the future .They are sure to take the market and the rest will fall behind.
