Legal Blah blah Apple whines about a bunch of software patents again. Go cry in a corner, Jobs. Either find a strategy that counters the rise of Android, or just suck it up and be a man about it. Oh, HTC is the target this time around. Again. Whatever.

What happened in June 2010? iPhone 4. When was it widely available? Late June, early July. When was the last Apple hardware refresh? June 2010. When was the last Android hardware refresh? Yesterday, pretty much... if not yesterday, certainly last week. What will be the REAL interesting point, the REAL indicator is what happens after the next iPhone hardware refresh. If that shows a similar decline, I'd have to then agree with you. As it stands, Worldwide, Android is still quite a way behind and iOS fluctuates depending on which regions get what hardware (due to the staggered worldwide release schedules that Apple seems to cling to.)

Essentially - yes, I saw the line graphs, no I do not take them at face value as telling the whole story. That is why looking at the bar graphs is also telling. It shows you how far Android is still behind iOS, despite the rapid growth and over 10:1 ratio of handsets manufacturers.
