Symbian, Linux Lead Mobile OS Market

Lora Bentley

ABI Research says in five years, more mobile phones will run on Mobile Linux than on Windows Mobile. According to a Reg Hardware piece, 23 percent of smartphones will feature Linux by 2013, putting the open source OS in second place -- behind Symbian -- in the mobile market.


LiMo and Android will carry much of that share, according to ABI VP Stuart Carlaw, but that's not to say emerging mobile operating systems should be discounted. Nokia's Maemo may also make a play, he says.
