PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless While everybody outside of the US has been able to mix and match iPhone and wireless operator, the iPhone was still tied to a single carrier in the US. Today, Verizon and Apple announced the much-hyped Verizon iPhone 4. While the rest of the world collectively yawns, this is good news for American consumers, since there will be more competition, and thus, more choice. Edit: Eh, the other way around. First choice, then competition.

As a Tasmanian, I have found that despite Apple dominating in the past, and still having a far greater share of the smartphone market, things are rapidly moving towards android.

I have noticed that quite a large percentage of people now have smartphones, and seeing people with HTC Desires and Galaxy Ses is now commonplace, with maybe a quarter of the people I see with a smartphone sporting an android.

Anecdotal, I know, but when there are that many people using android that seeing them is commonplace, it should indicate a marketshare well above the single digits that you mentioned.
