The Kenyan mobile ecosystem is largely a domain of budget smartphones running the Android operating system. It was, therefore, rather obvious that the open source operating system will reign.

Nokia’s Series 40 runs on about 20% of all smartphones in Kenyan with other variants of the company’s operating system (Nokia unknown and Symbian) running on about 4% of all the devices.

The Windows Phone operating system runs on about 3% of all the devices in the country. iOS (Apple’s Operating System) has a 2% market share in Kenya.
