Bigger potential market does not mean it will surpass the already in place market that exists. Its like pennies on the dollar in comparison.
In a large enterprise system there are more PCs than people. This will not change. In addition they buy very large licensing to ensure they can continually expand. Rarely (if ever) does an enterprise risk going without security software.
However, very often individuals let their PCs go with out security software. So what makes you think that they will buy security software for their phone?
While I am sure some will, they will likely be a minority. There is no way that the market will surpass that of the Windows market.
Computers have been intelligent for a long time now. It just so happens that the program writers are about as effective as a room full of monkeys trying to crank out a copy of Hamlet.
Valid points, however that same enterprise enviroment also includes mobiles and are as likely to treat these mobile computing devices in the same manner.
all the security companies are looking at the handheld market as a growth area (desktop/server/laptop market is pretty static) whilst I do not claim that it will overtake windows I certainly would not be supprised if it did
it is not just the imerging market of mobiles, windows is under threat from other OS's and cloud services
in addition the OP does not state the company being refered to, if this is one of the smaller firms then it can well be the case that between the growth of android and the ever pressing pressure of the big players this particular company may find it being the case
