    Plus, many more people buy Android phones and keep them stock then root and ROM them.

    Most of my friends own Android phones and all are stock. The rooting community is a small one compared to the total number of Android phones out there.

    The carriers are partly to blame for this. They don't need 20 nearly identical Android handsets. And because Moto/HTC/Sammie don't have the weight Apple does, the carriers force them to make minor differences so they can have an "exclusive" handset to try to pull customers earn. That's why you end-up with Moto making the Atrix and the Bionic, which aside from the radios could have been the same phone. Or HTC making the Evo and then the Incredible or whatever. Sammie kind of copies the IPhone model with its Galaxy line, but then because of the carriers ends-up with 8-10 very similar variants.

    Apple would never do it, but if the carriers could AT&T would fall all over themselves to have an exclusive 4.3" IPhone. And so then VZW would want an exclusive LTE IPhone. Then Sprint gets in the game with an exclusive 4.5" IPhone. And then TMo wants an IPhone with a slide-out keyboard.
