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.

  1. I predict all the sheep will go out and buy the next iPhone and the next iPad even though there’s nothing wrong with the current ones they have..

    I also predict more rednecks with iPhones and other people who think the iphone is a status symbol and having one makes them looks smart… since they will now be readily available at your local Walmart!

  2. You know, all these great pictures you see in my articles, they don’t simply get popped in automatically by the server, I have to hunt that shit down myself and pair that shit like wine.

    I don’t mean no disrespect but a compliment would be nice.

  3. To keep the predictions rolling:

    Within two months following (if this isn’t already the case at the time) of the iPad 2/3 being released, at least one Android tablet of equal or more impressive specs and general awesomeness will be available and most people within the next four months making such predictions will be in some agreement that the Android portion of the tablet platform distribution will dwarf the iPad by mid 2012 and as time passes that date will regress toward this year.
