Windows Phone and Blackberry are just about dead. iOS market share is starting to become worryingly smaller. However, most of Android’s growth is in developing countries. Having said this, only yesterday, on my trip up to London, I observed that so many people had Samsung phones. Only a short time ago everyone seemed to have iPhones. Things are changing.

Android really is getting huge. Cue European anti-trust investigations.
