At Mobile World Congress 2013, an analyst reports, phablets are all the rage

Who remembers Maemo, imode, MeeGo or, for that matter, Windows Mobile?
To counter Stephen Elop's remark that by joining forces, Nokia (NOK) and Microsoft (MSFT) were going to make it a "three horse race" -- implying that Apple's (AAPL) iOS and Google's (GOOG) Android were the only other viable mobile ecosystems in the running -- Asymco's Horace Dediu did some digging and produced the chart at right.
