ABI Research: Linux Smartphones Will Outperform All Others

By CIOinsight  |  Posted 06-02-2010
Linux-based smartphones, such as those running Google's Android, will outstrip the growth of the rest of the market and account for more than a third of worldwide market share by 2015, ABI is predicting. Android won't, however, be without competition.

Citing Google's figure of 60,000 Android smartphones currently shipping each day (though in a May 13 shareholders' meeting, Google CEO Eric Schmidt raised that figure to 65,000) ABI said it expects Linux-enabled smartphones to outstrip the growth of the rest of the worldwide smartphone market and comprise 33 percent market share by 2015.
