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.

Although I too would suggest the "10% market share" comment is stretching it, I can see the iPhone under serious market pressure from Android phones. Multiple carriers and multiple phone models means out selling iPhone period. And remember, no matter what you think of the iPhone's software/hardware qualities, it is still shackled to that ball-and-chain of a network ATT.
