Windows Phone to overtake iOS by 2015, claims report

But Android will be out in front of both

How’s this for some wishful thinking? The International Data Corporation’s quarterly report on all things mobile has bravely suggested that the Windows Phone platform will have more market share in 2015 than Apple’s iOS.

The report claims that the added clout of Nokia will work in Microsoft’s favour, propelling the mobile OS to a 20.3 per cent market share within four years. That’s a far cry from the 3.8 per cent it will achieve by the end of this year.


IDC reckons that Apple will slip into third place in 2015, with a market share of just 16.9 per cent. This’ll leave Android with a far superior market share of 43.8 per cent, which will be achieved due to its diversity and range of handsets.

The report also claims that in 2013, 1 billion smartphones will ship worldwide, which is more than double the total expected for 2011. Is IDC right, or are these projections way off the mark? Let us know on the T3 Twitter feed.
