Digitimes predicts 6.2% marketshare for Windows Phone in 2012. Symbian lumped in with “others” for 18.1%
Not exactly sure what the research is (sample size, demographic) but Digitimes has predicted that Windows Phone will grow to 6.2%, amassing 40 million shipments in 2012. That’s not even half of Symbian’s 100M plus sales from Nokia alone as Symbian can reach very, very low price points that we are still yet to see with Windows Phone.
Nokia’s push on Windows Phone truly begins in 2012 as they look to properly address the high end as well as bringing WP to lower price points. I think by 2012, Nokia are also aiming to make the majority of WP shipments.
Digitimes’ Research puts Symbian in the “others” pile that makes up 18.1%. That includes declining BlackBerry and well others.
