Greetings Early . . . Let me suggest this and please feel free to correct my reasoning. There are vast numbers of Android phones on the market. Hundreds arrive every year to replace the hundreds that depart the scene. There is only one (OK, we have the 4 and 4S, so perhaps there are two) iPhone(s). Apple might have a smaller market share, but when one company has 34% of the total market, I should think that says something. When the iPhone 5 arrives, I am betting the numbers you posted will change and in Apple's favor. Then perhaps some Android phone will arrive that captures the public's attention and Apple will slip. Android holds the lead (in my opinion) not because it is better, but because you can get an Android phone for free or almost no cost from hundreds of places. And there are (I am guessing) more than 75 Android Phones currently on the market. They are sold off contract by Boost, VM and Cricket in my grocery store and the 7-11. Not so with the iPhone. Well, you can get one no contract which is why I am going to purchase one. I will watch the news about sales of the 4/4s sold through Cricket and VM. I am willing to bet theyt sell fast. You can likely attribute some sales to the public's perception that an iPhone is the best phone. I also wonder what would happen if Apple licensed iOS. Would there be as many Android OS phones or would we see dozens of iOS phones offered by other manufacturers? I am convinced there would be fewer Android phones and more models running iOS. And if Android was not open source, would there be as many Android phones? Again, clarifications are welcome.
