Shipments of Symbian handsets expected to double by 2014 According to a new report from Juniper Research, shipments of phones using the Symbian OS will double by 2014, to 180 million units.
More notably however, is the report's conclusion that Symbian market share will remain the same over the period of time, despite strong growth and expansion from other operating systems like Android and LiMo.

The Open Source OS report says that total open source handsets should move to 223 million by 2014, with Symbian the strong majority still. The report does not count RIM, Apple or webOS as completely open source OS.

The report also concluded that "choice of OS is now critical and market share will, to a large extent, follow application development."
