Mobile OS

Did you know that there are 30 mobile platforms that came and went in the last two decades? Starting with the PenPoint OS by GO Corporation in 1991, there have been a ton that have been born and died shortly after. iOS, Android, Windows, Symbian, Blackberry, and Brew are the only ones left and it’s very possible that there will only be 3 within a couple of years.

The November, 2011 study called Clash of the Ecosystems is an exhaustive 60-page report on the subject, while Developer Economics 2012 breaks down the new app economy. This infographic from Vision Mobile comes to use via Seattle Nissan and explores “Mobile Ecosystems”. Click to enlarge.
