Gartner’s 2014 Predictions

Up 6% from last year, Gartner predicts that 2.5 billion devices will be sold worldwide. A majority, at 75%, will be mobile devices. Of the 1.9 billion mobile devices that will be sold, it is estimated that Android will take (nearly) half the cake at a whopping 42%. Although Android takes the reigns for operating systems, we have found time and time again that doesn’t amount to higher profits. Android may sell more but iOS has typically rakes in more profits.

 

Android has seen a massive boost, especially in the last year, thanks in part to Samsung’s massive success with the S4. They have released a multitude of smartphones under their flagship Galaxy S4 accommodating to people of all ages and interests (mini, adventure, waterproof, etc.). We are still waiting on Apple’s newest smartphone to add a competitive edge to the game.
