Smartphones are becoming the default
With increasing mob phone processing power Android is making headway into the cheaper, formerly 'non-smart' market. I wonder how long the cheap segment will remain free from Android: the hardware is only getting cheaper and focusing on Android would save companies from having to use Symbian or their own non-smart phone OS.
Check Gartner's numbers: Nokia's sales are dropping rapidly, from 28.2% market share a year ago to 23.9% last quarter. Android's smartphone market share more than doubled from 25.3% to 52.5%.
And despite El Reg's WinPhone marketing fluff, I don't see how Nokia will be able to turn the tide. We're quickly heading towards an Android world with Samsung comfortably in the lead.
I for one welcome our Korean-Mountainview Penguin overlords!
