Somewhat squewed towards consumer/mobile. One interesting trend missed is the increasing adoption of high-level (graphical/model-based) tools in industrial/aerospace/automotive/medical especially where reducing time-to-market is more important than hardware bill-of-materials cost.

How soon many forget... Android sales were terrible for more than a year after its introduction. So it's not wise to base WP7's potential on only 1 month of sales figures. And the iPhone was pre-hyped far in advance of its release and there are scores of Apple Fanboys who will buy most anything new from Apple the day it comes out. So that's not a fair comparison either.

I wish 4 will be true. But unfortunately its not the case. Nokia plans to support the Symbian in 2011 http://www.infosyncworld.com/reviews/cell-phones/nokia-symbian/11605.html I played with WP7 recently. its amazingly slick and much more responsive than Android. I dont see a very fast adoption due to lack of apps & developers but it has got the potential to be a real competitor to iOS & Android.

I think we need to add the OS supporting multi-core processors

These are a very narrow scope predictions. Most refering to mobile market. How about automotive? I guess the list would never end. Will an RTOS flavor of Android be seen? And... aren't most of us a little anti-microsoft? If Microsoft thinks they can... let's wait and see. Maybe they find the killer app.

I agree on the Android and Meego projections, but I don't see Windows Phone 7 making an impact. Even with the advertising push Microsoft has made, no real sales numbers have come out. I think the phone market will be iOS, Android and RIM, and Phone 7 just won't make any inroads.

Interesting prediction on Win Phone 7. I haven't played with it yet myself, but if they can leave the Apple model and find a market for themselves then perhaps they can have success.
