One Nokia To Rule Them All?

Many folks think Android is posed for world domination. It ain't necessarily so. Over at Lifehacker, Gus has broken down the figures from analysts Gartner as they relate to projected smartphone sales by 2014. The bad news for Android fans? It might not be you. iPhone aficionados? Don't get too smug either. Despite being viewed by many as struggling, Gartner still sees Nokia's Symbian platform having the lion's share of the market.

Of course, predictions are just predictions and not set in stone, but it's interesting to see a picture of the future that affords space for multiple smartphone models. Although Windows Phone, according to Gartner, might be in something of a death spiral.

    I dont know how people that earn less than US$2 a day afford an Android phone, can you?

    This is great news, because I have always been a huge Nokia fan, from the N81, to the N95 and now using the N97. Sure there are problems everynow and then, but they are built like tanks (in a good way...how they dont break)

    Unless Nokia get their heads out of their smug little arses, they won't have any customers aside from the poor and the elderly.

    Gartner are rubbish, please don't quote them.

    All they do is linear extrapolation of existing trends, they offer zero insight into disruptive influence. In other words they predict future sales based on past sales nothing more nothing less. You can do it yourself with a $10 calculator.

      $10 calculator? When was the last time anyone paid for a calculator? :)
