Since its announcement, Windows Phone has often been the subject of forecasts. Digitimes Research does not go forward until 2015 but merely present the results of a forecast for the smartphone market in 2012.
The study projected sales for the mobile operating system from Redmond are 40 million Windows Phone, 6.2% of the market. The 6% is a small slice compared to 52% to 18% of Android or the iPhone but it is a encouraging forecast for Microsoft considering that, according to Digitimes, the remaining 18% will be represented by the union of Symbian, and BlackBerry the other OS.
What do you think? There is hope for Microsoft to reach third place by the end of 2012?
