Pyramid: Why Windows Phone will beat Android
The recent prediction by Pyramid Research that Windows Phone would become the dominant mobile OS in just four years surprised many industry watchers, several of whom argued with the forecast. In a new analyst note, the research firm explains its prognostication.
Pyramid’s initial report asserted that by “2015, Windows Phone will establish itself as the leader in the smartphone OS space,” thereby beating Android for the top spot. And the firm qualified that statement in its new note to reflect its belief that Microsoft’s mobile OS will become the leader much sooner, as early as 2013.
With Android enjoying a huge lead among smartphone users, how can Pyramid point to Windows Phone as becoming the major player so quickly? As part of the answer, the research firm cites the new deal between Nokia and Microsoft.
So a deal between two former mobile powerhouses is going to revitalize both of them and cause their inferior products to outpace Android and iOS? Time for another bong hit, dude.
