Will Android and Windows Phone steal the Apple throne?

Android marches ahead while iOS falls back

According to two separate studies that have been conducted, Apple’s influence in the mobile world might come to dwindle in the coming years while Android rises to the desirable throne.

If we’re to believe Ovum’s second annual developer survey, released just yesterday, we might expect Android to become a more important platform than iOS to the developers within the next 12 months.

The study also noted growing support behind both Blackberry and Windows Phone platforms, which could make the mobile market become even more competitive as developers start exploring opportunities across all different systems.

According to another report, published last week, by IHS iSuppli, Microsoft’s mobile operating system might also see some light, and can with some luck have overtaken the iOS market share by 2015, due the strong support by Nokia.

The report also goes on to predicting that by 2015, Windows Phone will reach a total market share of 16.7 percent, as iOS falls back to a low 16.7 percent, and Android bursts ahead to the throne with a 58.1 percent market share.

However, the Microsoft platform has some way to go, as it was only accounted for 1.9 percent of the market in 2011, with iOS taking 18 percent of the market and Android being way ahead with its 47.4 percent

So will Windows Phone be able to pass Apple’s share in the coming three years, or is such a speculation way off the mark? Only time can tell.
