    I agree it's fair to compare OS to OS but I think Apple is perfectly ok with their one phone and also being the wealthiest company on earth. I don't really see how they have lost money.

    Apples fine always has been. Marketshare is not something they're going to retake but as mentioned already they have the most sales among all oems and the highest margins. I'm sure they don't mind.

    Put another way the 28% all belongs to Apple while the 56% is divided up among a multitude of brands so I doubt any one of the Android manufactures have 28% of that 56%. It is cool to see that people prefer choice over Apple's one-size-fits-all approach.

    Just great! now Apple has even MORE reason to start another lawsuit. Maybe it will be against Neilsen ratings this time for not calculating the results on an iPad2.

    Iphone users have very limited options, and all models of Iphone have similarity in overall looks, it makes a boring impression

    Android and iPhone market share...thats good n all. Nothing much has changed over the past 12 months. I'm interested in the 6%. Read an article about the Samsung Wave, running Bada selling 10 million phones since 2010. Thats kinda wild if it's outsold WP7..

    What are Apple's real models? White or Black? 32gb or 64gb?

    I'm curious to see how people are going to react to the iPhone 5 when it's released. I know three people who have replaced their Android smartphone with the current iPhone because they thought it was easier to use and had fewer software glitches. Battery life was also a major factor in their decision to go with iOS as opposed to Android, so I can't help but wonder how many other consumers will feel the same way. I think many of the changes that Apple has made to their latest OS iteration will make the transition from Android for these people even easier.

    Now don't get me wrong! I definitely consider myself to be an Android loyalist/fanboy, and I was sad to see these people join the "dark side". However, all three of the people I know who have made that jump couldn't be happier with their decision. It'll be interesting to see how many people stay with the little green robot once the new offering from the Cupertino boys is available.

    Ditto, should be an interesting quarter for both sides.

    I think you will get your Apple loyalists, current iPhone upgraders and a mix of Android users buying it, so I mean the sales will be huge for the iPhone itself but as far as the market share is concerned, I don't see it being a major blow to Android.
