Henry Blodget, back in April:
Importantly, it’s not a question of which platform is “better.”
(This is irrelevant.) It’s a question of which platform everyone
else uses. And increasingly, in the smartphone market, barring a
radical change in trend, that’s Android.
So that’s why Android’s gains matter. And, yes, Apple fans should
be scared to death about them.
Actual result: Apple sold more iPhones in calendar 2011 than in 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010 combined; 55 percent of all smartphones sold by Verizon last quarter were iPhones.
