Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) may have entered the smartphone race far too late as Android continues to defy the odds with its booming market share. 187 million Android powered devices were shipped in Q1 2014, an impressive increase from 150.62 million devices shipped during the same quarter a year ago.
The market share of Windows OS gained a good growth of 16% in Q1 2014 through shipments of 13.27 million devices. Blackberry OS has officially been wiped out from the consumer market, with its OS market share now at 0%. The market share of other operating systems such as Symbian, Tizen and various others, has shrunk to 0%.
The shipments of basic mobile devices has fallen by 44% in one year and 24% since last quarter.

Overall mobile phone sales were down about 11 million units for 2009—perhaps good news for the growing concern about the contribution mobile phones make to the growing e-waste problem. Apple almost doubled its share of the smartphone market over the last year, up from 8.2 in 2008. Symbian-based devices also continued to slip, down over five points to 46.9 percent of the smartphone market, despite an increase in unit shipments in 2009.
Windows Mobile has also declined significantly in the last year, as Microsoft's mobile OS stagnated. Linux-based phones (mostly Limo) are barely a blip on the radar in the US (as are Symbian phones), and those devices are also on the decline globally. Overall, though, you can expect 2010 to be a repeat of the focus on OS platforms and app stores, with no major innovation in the hardware itself.

ABI Research calculated the global mobile market shipments, which includes both smartphones and basic mobiles collectively. However, Apple recorded a strong Y-O-Y growth of 17%, owing to impressive performance of the iPhone 5S.
Only 750,000 Blackberry OS powered devices were shipped in Q1 2014 from 5.4 million shipments a year earlier.
Basic mobile phones lost their market share by 5% in the past one year but are still at 30%. First-time smartphone users all over the world are using Android powered devices for the wide range of applications and simple user interface.

Three of the top five vendors saw sales decline over the year, with Nokia down a couple points, and Motorola and Sony Ericsson seeing their shares cut almost in half. So far, though, only Apple has demonstrated much success with a limited device selection—Android's growth has come from a variety of handsets from the likes of HTC and Motorola. A refocused effort behind Windows Phone 7 Series may change that somewhat, but not before then end of 2010. Nokia and Intel have teamed up to transform the Linux-based Meamo into Meego, but Milanesi told Ars that Meamo is counted in the "Others" category, which has shrunk significantly in the last year to represent only 0.6 percent of smartphones in total. Android will continue to dominate from increased smartphone penetration in developing markets and increase its massive market share even further.
ASOP will continue to grow marginally as OEMs try to configure the OS to suit their preferences.
According to ABI, growth of iOS is undoubtedly flattening, as it fails to gain from the increased smartphone penetration in emerging smartphone markets. Shipments of Windows Phone OS powered devices doubled throughout 2013, yet its OS market share stands at  just 3% globally. During the same period last year, shipments of basic mobile phones were far higher than shipments of Android OS powered devices. Meanwhile, the Windows Phone powered OS is an attractive option for OEMs to make gains in countries where the Android market is saturated. Nokia still commands large but declining chunks of smartphone and overall mobile phone sales, while iPhone and Android devices saw big leaps last year. Samsung's share of the mobile phone market is up to almost 20 percent, and LG bumped up a couple points to 10 percent.
Android had the biggest improvement year-over-year, though, posting a seven-fold increase to 3.9 percent. Meanwhile, Apple, RIM, and Android devices all stand to grow significantly in the meantime. Android Open Search Project (AOSP) or forked Android versions had 13% market share in Q1 2014, bringing Android’s entire total to 57%.
Because of AOSP, Google loses out on revenue obtained through the Play Store and search advertisements. Apple launched the low priced iPhone 5C last year to attract more customers from emerging markets, but the device did little to boost sales volumes. The new version of BlackBerry OS named BlackBerry 10 was also a colossal failure, declining by 44% in OS market share Y-O-Y. This group includes feature phones, such as the Nokia Asha series, which have basic internet connectivity. In Q4 2013, shipments of basic mobile phones stood at 167.3 million and were exceeded by shipments of Android OS powered devices for the first time.

However, the timing of the entry is far too late as Android’s market share is simply too vast. RIM gained a few points by selling an extra 11 million Blackberrys year-over-year, capturing 20 percent market share. Google is making the biggest gains, as billions of users all over the world are upgrading to smartphones from basic mobile phones. The next few years could see the market share of iOS falling further, despite its popularity in U.S, Japan and Australia. Nokia, which is now the property of Microsoft, has launched several low-end and high-end Lumia models to attract all segments of customers. The company has reportedly considered exiting the handset business, and focus on delivering software to defense and other applications. These figures prove that Android is the biggest gainer from the declining basic mobile market. Totally 427 million mobile mobile devices were shipped in Q1 2014, a 10% decline from Q4 2013. It is estimated that in 2014, almost 1 billion Android powered devices will be shipped worldwide.
Microsoft has even allowed all OEMs to use the WindowsPhone 8 OS free of cost for manufacturing tablets and smartphones having screen size 9 inch or small, to increase the market share.
Two smartphones are slated for launch this year but from now on, Blackberry is officially a dead OS, placed in the other category, since sales of Blackberry OS powered devices were not even at 1% between Q4 2013 and Q1 2014.
These phones use other operating systems such as Firefox OS and are available for extremely low prices in emerging countries. At the current pace, the best Microsoft can hope for is to gain 12% market share by 2017 and compete with Apple for second place. Device shipments are usually far less in Q1 2014, due to the closure of the holiday season and lack of new products. The upgraded Windows Phone OS 8.1 has received a good response, thanks to several modifications and improvements. Firefox plans to aggressively enter the emerging smartphone market by producing a low-cost smartphone for US$25.
