Strategy Analytics has released a new report with its predictions for mobile operating system market share in 2013. While several companies are releasing new OSes, Strategy Analytics believes that only Mozilla's Firefox OS will capture significant market share, and Firefox's share will likely be just 1 percent of the market. By comparison, it believes Android will retain 62 percent of the market.

But that doesn't mean the mobile development industry should count Firefox out. “It took Android just two years from commercial launch to overtake Symbian and go from new entrant to established global leader, so things can change extremely fast in the smartphone industry,” noted Strategy Analytics analyst Neil Mawston.

Smartphones running Firefox OS are due to launch during the first six months of 2013.
