Apple iPhone to own 40% of global market by 2013?

rogers-iphone-3g-canada-fidoIn a recent report, research firm Generator Research is predicting Apple will own 40% of the global smartphone market and surpass Nokia by 2013 as the largest. The report said Apple has “the resources, competencies and motivation to invest in the mobile sector just at the time when the economic climate is forcing many established players in the mobile industry to cut back on product development.”

Generator also predicts 77 million iPhone will be sold in in 2013 and the App store will be “developed to the point where third party developers have access to network assets that will allow them to write programs that can send messages and establish voice calls between different iPhones.”
