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.

Except the outrageous fees those customers would have to pay for leaving their multi-year plans early.

No. You CANNOT get an iPhone unless your plan has elapsed. At the point you get an iPhone you can go elsewhere and get a different phone.

(To be fair, if your a good customer AT&T will give some concessions - I get a smartphone (including the iPhone) for free every 18 months from AT&T - but most people have to wait through their contract.)
