Android, Windows Phone will top smartphone OS sales in 2015, Gartner says

Matt Hamblen, Computerworld | April 7, 2011
Microsoft and Nokia will be big smartphone winners over the next four years, Gartner predicts.

RIM's smartphone share will decline into 2015, mainly due to competition in the consumer and business markets. RIM's share in 2011 will be 13.4%, dropping to 11% in 2015, Gartner said.

Cozza predicts that two-thirds of the 1.1 billion smartphones sold in 2015 would cost on average no more than $300. The smartphone will "have been finally truly democratized" by 2015, Cozza said.

Lower cost smartphones are an important theme behind Gartner's overall forecast, with mid- and lower-cost smartphones driving Windows Phone sales into second place in 2015, and somewhat higher average costs pushing iPhone into third place that year.
