Free Advice: Don’t Listen to Gartner

According to an article published by InformationWeek, the research firm Gartner believes the Windows Phone 7 will fail at infiltrating the smartphone market.


Gartner predicts the release of Windows Phone 7 will help bump Microsoft’s share of the worldwide market from 4.7% in 2010 to 5.2% in 2011, but says the company’s share will ultimately decline to just 3.9% by 2014.

By then, Microsoft will badly trail virtually every other major mobile OS developer, according to Gartner. The firm predicts the Symbian OS will continue to lead the market in 2014, with a 30.2% stake, just barely ahead of Google’s Android. Gartner sees Android’s share ballooning to 29.6% by 2014, up from 17.7% in 2010 and just 3.9% in 2009.”

Basically I don’t think Gartner knows what they are talking about and I think the Windows Phone 7 will be very successful and probably have 20% of the market by 2014 instead of 3.9% and I am not even an analyst, just a self-proclaimed genius.
