Despite mounting competition from other operating systems (OSs), Apple's iOS will continue to own the majority of the worldwide media tablet through 2015, according to Gartner. Due to the success of Apple's iPad, iOS will account for 69 percent of media tablet OSs in 2011, and represent 47 percent of the media tablet market in 2015.
The new released numbers from Gartner are interesting in terms of Windows and RIM.
This is hard to believe, especially that Microsoft office is still the market leader for writing, calculation, and presentation. RIM is market leader for secure mobile email and first choice in the government.
Clearly the trend is to mobile and small smart computers. Surely we will have in a few years smart phone like the Motorola Atrix which serves a phone on the road and as a computer at work. But i cant imagine that Microsoft will not play a big role. MS will not license their office package to Apple, Google or other OS platforms. Therefore i believe the Gartner report is not accurate. It is based on OS which are now available for mobile tablets. This is surely a mistake not to consider RIM or Windows. However Gartner has a lot of influence. And companies will make their decision on Gardner results which means it will be harder for MS and RIM to get into the mobile tablet market.
My predictions will be slightly different than from Gartner.
QNX is RIM. Please count RIM and QNX together as one OS.
I have worked on computers since 1982 almost every day. I had my first internet connection in the early ’90s. Since 1994 I am more or less in online marketing. I tweet, I bing, I facebook, I wrote books. But I never ever wrote my own blog. I never thought I needed to, but too many people are telling me I should share my thoughts with others. By the way, you might think my English is weird. You are right; I am originally from Germany. Please excuse any uncommon grammar or unorthodox spelling.
