Android gathers strength and BlackBerry, Windows hang in

Android will replace Apple’s iOS as the most important mobile operating system platform for developers, according to a new report from Ovum.

After Apple’s massive surge forward in the consumer mobile market in recent years, Ovum reckons Android will become more important to developers within the next twelve months.

But it says there is also growing momentum behind Windows Phone, which developers now consider worthy of investment. There is also growing interest in RIM’s BlackBerry OS, it adds.

Ovum agrees with other analysts in predicting that developers will increasingly concentrate on Web-based standards such as HTML5, rather than traditional cross-platform technologies such as Java and Flash. But paradoxically, it says vendor-specific channels such as Android Market are still seen as the best way to reach consumers.
