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.

iOS shares more with OSX than Android does with Linux.

For the latter, the situation is a bit more complex, but it boils down the fact that for Apple products, the main difference is the UI layer, where the APIs remain the same or are designed in the same way. For Android, the API's are mobile specific (The dalvik vm)
