Perfect block by Apple and Microsoft. If they can convince enough folks to support it going through, then they will have successfully cut the basic royalties out from under Nokia and Motorola, and peeled away the new defenses from Google.

Android will slowly dissappear. Apple will make, via Foxconn, three (or more) out of every four mobile phones on the earth. Windows Phone will replace BlackBerry entirely, and will be the majority of non-iOS devices that remain. This will be nothing short of market-rape of consumers across the globe.

Android is not going to disappear, even if, per impossible, Google should lose every single Android related infringement lawsuit, all Google has to do is just make some modifications to the source code and send out a firmware update to all the affected handsets

Unless Apple can show that Android has stolen iOS code at its heart... but that could be hard to prove, especially since Android has sufficiently different prioritization of operations. Android has developed to mimick iOS marginally (although with a lot of lag out-of-the-box), but can not truly accomplish the task as long as display functions are second-tier prioritized.

The fact is that most people really like the smooth eye-candy display behavior, such as the automatic pause in downloading a web page if you try to scroll on the screen, far more than being able to clumsily scroll around a web page while it is still loading... iOS and Windows Phone are the only mobile OS's I know of that prioritize the visual experience above the functio...

I would really like to know where you get those stats from. Because I have read at multiple sites the complete opposite. Android is outselling every other platform out there by a large margin. And the vast majority of those who do purchase them usually "stick" with that platform when they renew / upgrade.

Android is pretty terrible in many regards (terrible HUG guidelines, terrible performance, et.) , but it isn't going to disappear. It's too free.

What is likely is that it'll splinter off, ala Amazon Kindle and B&N Nook. Obviously, the current "happy family" of phone manufacturers all gunning for the same pie isn't sustainable.

I doubt it will stick around in the mobile phone industry, at least not among US or European OEM's. Huawei and ZTE might continue to try to run with it in the future, but not for export out of China. I can see Amazon and Barnes&Noble doing alright with it, as long as they modify it heavily for their own proprietary purposes and change the shape of their devices so that they do not look so much like an iPad in form-factor.

For phones, I personally think that iOS and Windows Phone will be all that sticks around among the major competitors. BlackBerry/QNX doesn't have the adaptability to survive, and WebOS has been reduced to an open-sourced toy. Symbian and MeeGo are dead, soon to be forgotten and wiped from the annals of history. Andr...

Haha... I have no clue what I'm smoking, but it sure must be something AWESOME!

Seriously though, I know that Android is currently #1, but they are not likely to be staying there for long. I have been working on a market analysis using Markov chains in a unitary matrix format, and have projected from current data on first-time smartphone buyers, from the latest retention data, and from current market share by OS that Android will peak in US market share in about 18 months... they will then gradually loose ground to iOS over the next 18 months that follow, eventually being left with a maximum of 15% market share versus an iOS market share of 76% in 2018. At that point, feature phones will have less than 1% market share, Windows Phone wil...
