Gartner Group and IDC research show the seismic changes in the smartphone operating system landscape in the years from 2005 to 2010, and then from 2010 to 2013. In 2005, Nokia’s Symbian operating system ruled the roost, with a 67 percent market share. By 2010, Symbian commanded only a 40 percent share, overtaken by newcomers Apple iOS and Google’s Android, and incumbent, Blackberry OS. By 2013, Android has nearly monopolised the market with an 80 percent share, while iOS maintains less than a 20 percent share.
