Unfair comparison as APPLE has only one phone per year - better comparison would be comparing it to WINDOWS phone - but then that would be an ANDROID win buy a landslide. Blackberry is smart to have several different models on all carriers.

What effort? The Android operating system and the Motorola Droid have barely been around 6 months, and look how it's taking over already. You're just scared because you know it's only a matter of time before all your friends grow up and get big boy phones. Sorry for you.

Not Android's fault that Apple decides to make one phone. Seems like Apple needs to smarten up and broaden their mobile phone landscape.

OS to OS is the best comparison. Apple has a very slow release cycle so it will always beat any 1 other phone out there if you go model vs model. Android is the opposite. So many devices come out that is fractures user base very quickly. OS/platforms while can be slightly different from model to model are the best way to compare. Doesn't surprise me that android is passing iphone. Apple only has 1 phone on 1 carrier, that alone hinders it. Apple doesn't care so fret not. Everyone is saying Apple is stupid for not expanding to vzw... Why should they, right now apple has tons of control and high profit margins. They don't care about making more sales, they care about control and making sales on their terms. They have always been this way (successful lately to boot)

not really... your comment is really unfair to be honest. You are talking about a phone product launched pretty much off the ipod platform where customers already loved the one product (it was magical mp3) to a phone. Vs a platform designed by a search engine... that came out a year after the fact. Apple is really good at innovation per device, a generational thing... Where as google is catching up with each update, slowly evolving...

If we are gonna put all the o.s.'s in here against one another, SYMBIAN wins over iphone, bb, android, windows and every other os by a large margin. That's a known fact. And if apple chooses to put out one handset per year, that's their problem. Comparisons will be made, regardless of that. When analysts make comparisons of how many iphones were sold, they don't break it down by model,they lump every iphone together. So the same can be done here with android.
