Being both a Symbian N97 and Iphone user, I would say both have pluses and minuses.....but to say that Symbian is going to dominate like this is kind of hard to swallow.

Nokia is just starting to work on the Software side of things with the N900 and S60V5 updates.......will Nokia and Symbian be leaving soon....no, but than again I do see other platforms catching up.

There are other analysis out that say Iphone can double in market share if they end exclusivity deals with Carrier....it happened in France, so the potential is there. To be fair, the Iphone is a single phone that competes with Symbian, Winmo, and Android with multiple phones.

Similarly I think we will have to see how WebOS, Android, and Apple OS develops to see how competitive it will be....don't forget that Nokia is moving towards Maemo phones as well and how that will play out is also interesting to see how it will affect Symbian sales.

It happened in the UK. It has also been the case in Australia. It will be reality in other countries as well.

However, Apple probably has so restrictive agreements for the permission to offer iPhone, that not all operators are going to accept them.
