As in the rest of the world, Android has experienced huge growth in its share of the Germany smartphone market in the past few years. Samsung, HTC and others have driven Android volumes to record highs. The Android expansion has come mostly at the expense of the Symbian, Blackberry and Microsoft platforms. We forecast Android smartphone sales to grow +76% in Germany in 2012, above the Western European average of +61%. This forecast is taken from a new report, Global Smartphone Sales Forecast by 12 Operating Systems for 88 Countries: 2007 to 2017, recently published by our Wireless Smartphone Strategies (WSS), and available to clients, or by contacting the report's author for further information, Scott Bicheno, at SBicheno@strategyanalytics.com.
