Smartphone: Post-PC Multi-Platform Era

Horace Dediu:

I’ve argued that the post-PC era will be a multi-platform era. Although it may seem that the situation in the US is rapidly moving toward a duopoly, it may not end up that way. Note how much non-consumption still exists.

Purple is Other and Red is webOS. For the month of May, based on comScore:

  • Android: +2.1 million users
  • iPhone: +1.0M
  • webOS/Palm: -96K
  • BlackBerry: -202K
  • Other: -95K

What I’d like to know is: How will this chart look in March 2012 or 2013? Will US smartphone share continue to increase at current rates? Will Android, in particular?
