Why Windows Phone Will Beat Android, Pyramid Finds

May 10, 2011

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., May 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Windows Phone will lead in mobile OS market share by 2015, topping even Android, according to a new Pyramid Points blog from Pyramid Research (www.pyr.com).

After publishing the global findings from Pyramid's Q1 smartphone forecast (http://www.pyramidresearch.com/pr_prlist/PR050911_SMRT.htm), some people picked up on the very last sentence of our precis: "By 2015, Windows Phone will establish itself as the leader in the smartphone OS space." This statement has been misinterpreted, thinking that the WP will establish its leadership in 2015.  "Pyramid believes that this will happen much earlier – as early as 2013," says Stela Bokun, Senior Analyst at Pyramid Research in her latest blog Why Windows Phone Will Beat Android.  While there are a wide range of opinions on this finding, this blog is mostly aimed at readers who want to understand better how we came to the projection.
