Windows Phone market share to pass iPhone by 2015

Both IDG and Gartner are predicting that Windows Phone sales will pass the iPhone by 2015. While Android is predicted to remain the top-dog in the smartphone market, Windows Phone market share is projected to grow while iOS market share is projected to shrink. We’ve been seeing an increased interest in designers and developers moving their apps to Windows Phone, and we expect this to increase in the coming years. Read the IDC report here and the Gartner report here. Apple is hardly dead, as this past quarter Apple sold 18.6 million iPhones, which is more than double the number of iPhones it sold in the same quarter just one year ago. While their sales may continue to go up, the overall smartphone market is expected to grow at a higher rate, with more of those sales going to Windows Phone and Android.
