IDC: Persistent with prediction that WP will overtake iOS

| June 7, 2012 | 82 Replies

IDC is making some predictions again of the smartphone marketshares. By 2016, they expect Windows Phone to reach 19.2%, edging out iOS at 19.0%, far behind Android at 61.0%

Is WP even at 5% now? Are they predicting a good second half for 2012?

BTW, looking back at past predictions, it is interesting that despite all current events, IDC still maintains a similar prediction from last year (20.9%)

Question on everyone’s minds…how does IDC pluck out these predictions?
