Google "As an online discussion about iOS vs. Android grows longer, the probability of someone bringing up this link approaches 1." The argument goes that before the iPhone, Android looked like a BlackBerry clone, and after the iPhone, it suddenly turned into an iOS clone. While this argument, with its pictures, is snappy and easily digestible, it doesn't actually seem to be supported by the facts.

Are you going back to the 90's when the PDA battle pitted Apple's MessagePad and its Newton OS against Tandy's Zoomer with the DOS-based GEOS? That predates the current conflict, and even though the Zoomer didn't sell well and the Newton devices were a modest success, it serves to illustrate how Apple carried the mobile computing competition through to the present.
