Google to dominate Nokia and Apple in mobile OS stakes

The battle between Google and Nokia to become the top mobile operating system provider will intensify as they grab a combined market share of 60 per cent by 2014, according to research from Gartner.

Symbian is currently the most used mobile OS thanks to its installed user base of Nokia customers, but Google’s Android is quickly gaining and should be contesting for the top spot as early as next year.

Research in Motion currently holds the third spot in terms of users, but the success of the iPhone and iPad will see Apple’s iOS surge past Blackberry next year according to the prediction.  However, despite the hype generated by Apple, Gartner expects it to hold half the market share of both Symbian and Android by 2014.
