Smartphone OS market to face fierce battle

Posted on Friday, October 16 2009 @ 06:36:33 CEST by


In-Stat analysts believe we're soon going to see a great battle between the smartphone operating systems:
“With Android on the upswing, Palm’s Web OS starting to expand, and Apple’s iPhone not showing signs of slowing down, the battleground, and subsequent weeding-out phase of the smartphone OS war has started,” said In-Stat analyst Allen Nogee.

AT&T announced that it would now allow VoIP applications that run over its cellular network to be installed on iPhones. In-Stat believes AT&T has been watching the FCC become more serious about network neutrality in the mobile space; it may be only a matter of time before AT&T would be forced to allow these applications anyway. Currently, many high-voice usage customers are business customers. These subscribers likely won’t switch to VoIP in the near-term as their business pays for their service. Still, the AT&T announcement will have long-term implications for the current US cell phone billing model. If AT&T and other operators cannot charge high prices for voice, they will likely make it up by raising prices for data.
