Linux Smartphones Will Dwarf the Competition

by Developer.com Staff

Linux-bases smartphones are positioned to dominate the mobile marketplace in the next 5 years, according to ABI Research.

According to a new report by ABI Research, open source Linux-based smartphones, such as Google's Android, will dominate the market by 2015.

"Citing Google's figure of 60,000 Android smartphones currently shipping each day (though at a May 13 shareholders' meeting, Google CEO Eric Schmidt raised the number to 65,000), ABI said it expects Linux-enabled smartphones to outstrip the growth of the rest of the worldwide smartphone market and win a 33 percent share of the market by 2015," reported eWeek.

Mobile Linux is nearly as disruptive to wireless arena as Linux was to the server market 10 years ago, ABI Analyst Victoria Fodale said in a statement.
