LinuxQuestions.org Mobile OS Stats

While on the topic of mobile Linux, I thought it would be interesting to post the mobile Operating System stats for LQ year-to-date.

Operating Systems
iPhone 54.38%
Android 18.10%
iPod 17.29%
SymbianOS 4.82%
BlackBerry 2.08%
Windows 1.72%

Despite being a late entry into the mobile OS market, Android seems to be putting up some respectable numbers. What impact will this have on the long term viability of some of the other mobile operating systems? My guess is that many will cease to exist long term, including at least one of the ones listed above. Of noticeable absence above (and not even in the top 10 at LQ), is Palm WebOS.
