MacDailyNews has numbers from a Gartner report on worldwide smart phone market share. The OS numbers are interesting: Symbian at 50%, RIM at 16%, iPhone OS at 13%, and Windows Mobile at 11%. But it’s the year-over-year growth where you can see who has actual momentum: Symbian is down 12% and Windows Mobile is down 3%; RIM is up 82% and iPhone OS is up a staggering 328%.
Now seems a good time to recall Steve Ballmer’s prediction regarding the iPhone’s prospects back in April 2007.
