Eugene Kaspersky Says Android Could Dominate with 80% Market Share

Eugene Kaspersky, the computer security expert behind the software that bears his name, thinks that Android could end up completely dominating the mobile platform market.  And by dominate, he means upwards of 80-percent of the landscape.  Speaking at Barcelona earlier this week, Kaspersky indicated that players like RIM and Apple could be fighting for the remaining 20% should things not change.

“I believe that if Apple, BlackBerry, Microsoft … don’t change their strategy very soon we will soon have the same mobile operating system landscape as we have with computers.”

We’re all for Android taking the biggest piece of the pie, but we never thought it would reach this level.  Do any of you guys think Kaspersky is on on the money or are you expecting a pretty even split among the players?
