Windows Mobile Boasts 90% Market Share……in Korea

While Windows Mobile may only currently have about 11% of the global market share when it comes to smartphones, it can brag to having roughly 90% of the market share in Korea.

As we all know, Samsung uses a multiple Operating System approach in regard to their devices in the global market. In Korea however, all of Samsung’s handsets are of the Windows Mobile variety, and LG Electronics plans to throw it’s hat into the ring, by bringing their first smartphone to Korea with a version of the “Incite”, which will also be running on Windows Mobile 6.1.

“Symbian OS is leading the smartphone OS market with a 49.8 percent global market share, followed by RIM (15.9 percent) and Mac OS X (12.9 percent) in the third quarter of 2008, according to Gartner Group, a U.S. research firm. However, there is no Symbian OS-based smartphone yet here in Korea.”

It looks like Korea may be saturated with more of our favorite OS than any other country in the world. It would certainly be nice if Koreans could just convince the rest of the world to adopt the most powerful OS on the planet, don’t you think?
