Google’s Android to become the world’s no. 2 mobile OS by 2013, trailing Symbian
It’s quite hard to predict what the mobile market will look like in a few years, but this doesn’t stop various analysts and companies to make forecasts.
For example, IDC believes that smartphone sales will surpass 390 million units by 2013.
Symbian will still be the market leader, thanks to Nokia’s strength around the world (well, save for the US, where Nokia’s far from being a top brand).
Linux mobile shipments “will trend down”, while Palm’s WebOS will “capture limited market share” (despite a steady growth), because of “limited deployment and availability of devices across multiple carriers.”
