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.

From the comments and the article, it seems that eventually the mobile ecosystem would have 3-4 major OSes and all of them would end up with a 20-30% market share. IMO, this will be great, because this would put interoperability as a high priority for application developers and create better standards.
