Android ready to leap from number 3 (behind Symbian and RIM) to number 2, in just the next few months.

Wow, everyone else is flat or declining.

This might be why Apple made the change on the C# running on its OS.

I am baffled at the money that MSFT is throwing into the Win7 moble OS. I think this is a waste of time; they missed the boat, by a long ways.

IMHO, in 3 years the market will settle into
30% iOS, especially if Verizon, T-Mobile and others go with Apple.
30% Android - the Open OS is going to plauge Apple. This will be augmented by developers who create a great game, then export their software to run on Android.
20% Research in Motion (RIM) - the Blackberry is the only accepted Gov’t smartphone, and the inertia that Blackberry has in the Industrial market is going to be tough to break.

This leaves 20% for Symbian, WebOS, Microsoft and other niche’ players.
