IDC's predictions for smartphone future

IDC announced expectations for the future of the smartphone market. There are no major surprises, but one rather disappointing one is BlackBerry. In fact, analysts predict that the Canadian manufacturer this year will cut their deliveries in half compared to last year. Current year will end with a share of only 0.8%, down from last year's 1.9%, while until the 2018., BlackBerry will drop to 0.3%.

IDC has reduced its forecast for tablet sales for this year due to a lack of new devices that could boost sales growth. According to a new IDC's predictions this year tablet sales will reach 227.4 million units, which is slightly less than previously projected 229.3 million. The main reason for lower sales is the lack of attractive new devices, especially new models of the iPad, which sales have decreased in the second quarter.

We heard a great story this morning surrounding the Samsung V Apple case. So far we have counted four sites that have repeated the analysis that takes massive liberties with data and also blurs the lines between the words “shipped” and sold. As we all know every quarter companies like IDC and Gartner release their estimates based on the number of units shipped to through the channel. They do this for most devices and are used to help predict growth and also to help investors. These reports us classify shipments in the following way “Shipments include shipments to distribution channels or end users. OEM sales are counted under the vendor/brand under which they are sold” this makes them somewhat unreliable to say the least.

windows-phone-7Someone has made a rather bold prediction about Windows Phone. According to the International Data Corp Windows Phone will grab some 14% market share between now and 2016 to become the second most used Mobile Operating system. Now it might interest you to know that this bit of insight also predicts that Android will hit its peak of market share this year and slowly decline. It will maintain the number one spot, but with only about 53%.
