Gartner Predicts Mobile OS Market Share

Lots of people apparently think it’s a big deal that Gartner is predicting Android will surpass iOS for second place. But why is that necessarily a good thing, given that they’re predicting Symbian will remain in first place? Who thinks Symbian is actually doing well? Nokia’s board sure doesn’t. Raw market share is not the game here. (Maybe raw market share is everything Google is after with Android, considering they’re giving it away for free. But it’s certainly not what Apple’s after.)
