    Wow 10 out of 12 spots. Im not counting the BB because every other carer has three top spots.
    By the way, JohnDroid, the Pro is very nice I was at Verizon this morning looking at the new releases. I really like the Pro, its a better version of a BB. I would definitely recommend it to everyone that has a BB and wants to try android.

    But the verizon lineup, really isn't that fair, since 85% of their phones are droids, is that a really fair comparison?

    Actually the majority of brand new smartphones for ALL carriers are all Android phones.

    Notice that every single phone touted as being 4G are all Android? Interesting isn't it
    Sprint EVO 4G
    Samsung EPIC 4G
    Tmobile HTC G2 (this one is debateable if its 4G, but TMobile claims it is)
    Droid RAZR MAXX/ DROID 2 Global/ DROID 1 with DROID 2 EXTENDED BATTERY (BP7X - 1860 mAh)
    ICS /Stock 2.2/UltimateDroid 1.0.0
    Stock Kernel/ChevyNo1's ULowV 1.25 GHz kernel

    That's not really a fair assumption then...if the majority of the new phones are androids? That would like be comparing apples to oranges. It can't be done...

    If all phones have the same operating system then, the report is favored automatically in the droid favor.

    Not all phones have the same operating system. There's iOS, BB, Symbian, WebOS, and now Windows Phone seems like it might be an actual competitor for once, too.
    Android is just better

    Its still telling though that all those top smartphone manufacturers have chosen Android. It is too early for windows phone 7 phones to be compared, though.

    I know they all have different OS...I'm just saying if all the new phones are droid, which are majority...and who rules? Majority...Therefor it isn't a fair assumption...

    Do you see where Im a going with this? But yet the number phone picked by the experts is the IPhone 4? Why is that? that is from cnet and few other publications. with the Droid X and the IPhone 3g running 2nd and third...

    I think the majority of people are shopping by carrier and going for style/hardware. Not that IOS isn't just as good in its own way, but I think a lot of the IPhone buyers are attracted to the hardware and the brand.

    If you look year-over-year, IPhone had impressive growth (as did all), but it's market share remained flat @25%.

    People always want to say "what if IPhone had more than one handset". Well, let's turn it around and say "what if the IPhone hardware sold running Android?" An IPhone running Android or IOS on another phone would cannibalize a lot of the existing IPhone sales.

    IMO, the brand is powerful. But there's a lot of competition, and side-by-side all else equal I think you'd see upwards of 10 phones (maybe more) taking the lionshare of the market. Within that segment, IPhone branding is probably worth a 2 to 1 share.

    One of the things being ignored in this debate is a lot of people who want an IPhone are already tolerating AT&T's service. If you don't want an IPhone or something else is more appealing you've probably left AT&T by now.

    The other big thing being ignored is the branding/marketing does have a huge impact, but IOS on another phone IS NOT an IPhone, not to mention the fact that there is only one IPhone and only one cell running IOS is critical to the marketing/branding strategy.

    And the main reason Android is popular with so many manufacturers is that it costs them nothing. They make more money while still being able to price competitively. I don't think there's a huge market of potential buyers out there (that don't already own an IPhone) willing to pay an extra $100 for a cell running IOS vs. the same hardware running Android. It's very difficult to make money competing on volume with something that is free, and this is why I don't think you'll ever see IOS licensed to more than a few, if at all.

    Apparently that fragmentation that was proposed as being the death of Android is actually helping.

    I believe however that all devices need to get on matching OS's and similar update schedules... but choice is powerful... and with Android devices you get choice of carrier and device (for the most part, after all it's not a perfect world)

    Not really. WinMobile comes with a licensing fee and IOS can't be licensed right now.

    From a mfr perspective, if you can make the same profit selling an Android phone for $200 (because Android OS costs you nothing) vs. selling an IOS or WinMobile phone for $300, you're going with Android and selling more phones = more profit. If Android wasn't a good OS, then the economics would change but it's very competitive, including the apps market.
