PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless When Apple sued HTC, and targeted Android specifically (news which came out of the blue), many people, including myself, were convinced this was Apple letting the world know they were afraid of Android's rising popularity. This notion was laughed away by many an Apple fan, but it turns out that this is most likely far closer to reality than many dare to admit: in the first quarter of 2010, Android conquered the number two market share spot from the iPhone in the US - and by a wide margin too. Update: Added a graph which better shows the trend.

I take it your jobsian response indicates you understand the research so let's review ...

1) you understand that the iphone is available to ~35% of US subscribers while the Androis is available to 100%

2) you presumably understand that, at some point in the future - perhaps next month perhaps in 2 years - the iPhone will be available to a much large percentage of US consumers (lets say it will double)

3) you understand that a good part of Android growth is 2 for 1 pricing

4) you surelly recognize the iPhone has not been updated in 12 months while a slew of great android devices have been launched and have been heavily promoted

So from these facts you draw the conclusion that the iPhone is headed for 10% market share? And you don't think your biased at all?
