PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless This is fun. The number one iOS carrier duking it out with the company behind the world's most popular smartphone operating system. Last month, Google's lead for the Android Open Source Project, Jean-Baptiste Queru, more or less blamed carriers (see comments) for Android's upgrade woes. Yesterday, AT&T's CEO Randall Stephenson retaliated, blaming Google for the delays. And yes, Google already responded to that, too.

What do you mean "apple few"? As far as i know, apple controls 30% of the smartphone market, while android controls 50%.

Obviously is apple vs samsung+htc+motorola+lg+whatever.

Few different models, obviously. That makes development much simpler.

You are right.

But I believe the problem here is with the manufacturers themselves, cause they love to make 50 different phones per year each, that ironically you can hardly differentiate.

So, if instead of making 20 phones, HTC makes 3 a year, it would be easier for them also.

But again, you are right.
