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 think you can certainly accuse Thom of being incorrect that the market forces described in the article will push Apple's marketshare down, and it would even be fair to accuse him of being foolish to think that. (I also disagree with Thom in his analysis).

But jumping to the conclusion that his incorrectness is a result of bias really only makes you look biased.
