Nokia has still got time to rethink on decision to opt for Windows 7. It can plan to release android version of handset as well. Nothing wrong in supporting both windows based and android based cellphones.

Random speculation. Thats all what it is . If these analysts knew whats going to happen in mobile, they would be doing that business than making predictions.

I thought Apple had a larger share of the market than Android. Apparently not. Google has suited its self well in the mobile market. I wouldn't be surprised to see a mobile version of the I-series processors for the Android phone in the near future. T-mobile is coming out with a dual core processor in their G2X Android phone.

It is shaping up to be a two-horse race between Apple and Android. Keep in mind that smartphones as a market segment will be evolving, though. These beasts are already more computer than phone. They will evolve display surfaces and input capabilities that might morph them into the next generation of truly personal computers. Can these OS'es take them that far? Larry M.

I have to agree with kinnar, I think the 2016 is very pessimistic and Android will surge in the next two years.

The results of the market research shows 45% market share by 2016 but this figure will be reached in very near future thats what seem to me looking towards the facility and licensing terms as well as development opportunity available with android.

From what I've read, the Bada platform is not really on par with the other Smartphone varieties. A moto Razr had media, picture, video, and web browsing. Do we call those Smart phones? With Samsung gobbling up such a huge share of the Android smartphone market, I'm they have the covered their bets...
