Looking at the figures for 2012, the trend is clear with Android usage increasing by 60% in the last 12 months, while Symbian OS usage has dropped by about the percentage over the past 12 months. Symbian 40 usage is stable. Apple iOS has usage has been steady for the past 12 months. 

With the Symbian OS phone released in the past two years, and Symbian 40 phones, being lower end devices, it is likely that majority of the remaining 32.6% will be absorbed by Android over the next two years.
