I would immediately fire any analyst, who thinks he can predict mobile OS market share down to a tenth of a percent 4 years in the future.

I was going to say, I could tell right off the bat this list was bogus...Blackberry still existing in 2016? Not a chance.

"IDC believes that Android will peak this year and decline from now on."

I believe that Android phone will surpass Windows Phone, simply because phone makers and users don't want to pay hefty license fee to Microsoft.

Whichever ananalyst made this claim clearly hasn't used a Windows Phone and compared it to say Android or iOS. Nor have they used Windows 8. -_-

Its not clarified in the story but since the only person in the world expecting this is Steve Ballmer I guess he works for the IDC too.

You know we can pull numbers out of the air just as easily as IDC did. On what basis did they come to these conclusions? So, Microsoft is going to regain 15% in 3 years without any competitive phones today? Microsoft lost all its loyal customers with their off, then on again development roadmap. Anyone remember Windows 6.5 being delayed for 8mo, and then no certainty that Win7 was ever going to happen. Oh yeah, I am sure 10% of the Android consumers are going to suddenly throw their phones in the fire to to go back 6 years for a Microsoft POS.

According to this article: http://www.tomsguide.com/us/android-ios-iphone-market-share-windows-phone,news-15351.html, Android has a 59% market share. Combined with iPhone, Google and Apple have 82%. If a substantionally more expensive, less functional web-page of an OS manages to overtake Android (or iOS, which I'm not fond of), I would loose all faith in humanity and probably kill myself.
