Opera is the #1 mobile browser, with a market share of nearly 30% or so.

Your imaginary scenario where the engine will be the same will never happen.

Also, browsers using webkit will always be "owned" by Apple since Apple basically runs the WK project. So anyone who goes for WK will either be a slave to Apple's release cycles, or will have to fork WK and develop it into something entirely different, and you're stuck with two different engines anyway in the end.
