Really hard to judge this past year's numbers because Apple broke the cycle of announcing and releasing the new iPhone in the summer and went with an October release. Q4 of 2011 and Q1 of 2012 actually should have been really strong for Apple, which they actually were Apple's strongest quarters. Looks to be about 30% and 25% respectively.
Judging by the release cycles, Android will gain shares by leaps and bounds in Q2 and Q3 but then Apple will make some ground in Q4 and Q1 but then Android will bounce back even more in Q2 and Q3 again. Incrimental gains year to year for the same quarter is the sign of growth for Android and it is what we are seeing.
I think what is seen as the thorn in Android's side is also what really helps in sales. Android phones are released at different points throughout the year whereas Apple releases one phone per year. It adds to fragmentation, but it keeps Android at the forefront constantly seeing new phones and features at different points in the year.
