As of today, there are 4 completely new mobile OSs that will be launched this year. With so many choices in the market, what will consumers buy? Which platforms will developers build apps for? We carried out a survey at YourStory to see what developers think about the new mobile OSs that are to come out in the coming quarters and results were heavily inclined towards Windows Phone 8.


Nokia has been the flag bearer for the Windows' most recent manifestation on mobile. The Lumia range of products has not only occupied market share, but has also garnered developer interest and trust over the past two years. With the smartphone ecosystem in India booming in general, the opportunity for mobile app developers and entrepreneurs is bigger than it has ever been.

This is testament to the fact that the Indian developers and entrepreneurs are constantly innovating and building meaningful apps for users globally.
