Rooting for your favorite mobile maker is like rooting for a favorite sports team. The score is constantly changing, and researchers continue to make speculations on the ultimate winner. Right now, iOS and Android hold the mobile market battle, constantly pushing ahead of each other for the lead. But now it seems a collective group of research firms are putting their bets on a different mobile OS.
According to Jordan Crook of TechCrunch:
“At least three major research firms believe that Windows Phone will overtake iOS by 2015, but peering that far into the mobile ecosystem’s future is damn near impossible. We can, however, get an idea of what will be happening in the next few months, and StatCounter predicts that Windows Phone will overtake BlackBerry very soon.
According to WMPowerUser, Microsoft’s mobile platform will surpass BlackBerry in the United States by November of this year.”
Windows Phone overtaking iOS doesn’t seem like something that could happen soon, but it seems plausible that it could quickly hit the third spot in the coming months.
Are these researchers on target and will Windows Phone overtake iOS? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
