Yea, yet another piece of statistical smoke. It's a snapshot in time of what 20,2002 folks have in their pockets. Not sure what that is supposed to say in the absense of any other parameters. I wouldn't make predictions based on it. Even if it never changes, I wouldn't ascribe success or failure to any of the platforms. Are folks happy with the product and is the product profitable to the manufaturer? Go over to and take a look at those statistics. Apple, OSX and iOS combined, have 10.2% of the market with MS coming in at 80.73. Apple might as well pack up and go home. They obviously don't have a chance.

Windows phone probably needs to do better to be a product that is making MS money as opposed to being a cost center, but it isn't clear to me that it needs to decimate the other OSs to do that, or even have the lions share to do so. (vieled MAC OS reference ) That might be a corporate goal, but it would be a shame if WP7 were abandoned simply because they came in second or third, or some percentage, rather than first.
