Legal Two different graphs. Both happen to be published at Ars Technica, with one of them coming from a different source. Seemingly completely unrelated, but when you ponder the waterfall of recent lawsuit-related news, these two graphs suddenly tell all there is to tell. These two innocent little graphs illustrate why Apple is attacking Android so ferociously.

They essentially created the market by making it popular and profitable

No, that would be reinvigorate. Besides, both smart phones and mp3 players were already popular and profitable.

creation in this sense shouldn't be taken 100% literally.

No, creating a market means just that, to create a new market that did not previously exist. The first tablets, mp3 players and smartphones created new markets.

These markets would have still been niche if Apple had not entered them and dominated them.

That's just speculation. If Apple hadn't it's perfectly possible that someone else would have.
