I predict that this email will kick off an intriguing staffmail thread containing our random predictions of whatever happening by whenever, the thead subsequently turning into a heavily trafficked article which I’ll summarily compile.
I also predict that the negative effects on Android sales due to the Verizon iPhone will prove to have been heavily exaggerated and that AT&T’s network in Midtown will continue to suck even after they roll out LTE to most cities, an event that won’t even come close to happening this year.

i predict that HP’s investment in palm will turn out to be a flop…at least in the smartphone space. they will most likely be duking u out with blackberry for 3rd place in tablets…doubt they can compete with the ipad or android…
Been wishing that Nokia would get on board the WP train for awhile now…they make really nice hardware and spend more r&d than anyone else but i have a feeling if they do go WP at least the 1st device they push out will be ugly as hell.
Oh! and to solidify at least one prediction, no matter what nokia chooses to do, meego will go down in history as a bigger flop than the kin in terms of money/time wasted

I predict that the mobile marketplace will level out with a certain group of operating systems, two of which are already well entrenched and established. Android and iOS will remain the lions share of the market in terms of sales and profit, with blackberry continuing on a downward spiral.
Windows phone 7 will continue to be a niche market through most of 2011 but will pick up speed once there are more handsets on more carriers with 4G. iPhone 5 is going to be another huge seller, and hopefully ushers in the first major UI change for iOS.
These other os alternatives will be floaters in the market place. Nokia will embrace either android or wp7.
And I’ll buy another iPad in a few months and the next iPhone in June.
