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.

Android merely morphs into what happens to be "le plat du jour" and effectively doesn't have a spine or character of its own. This makes it a worthless me-too product, because without a host to feed on, it would never know what it would have to be about.

So even if it is a "worthless me-too", developers blithely ignore that part. Yes, even those that code for iOS first and then port to Android.
