I don't see how this market share is relevant.
They are comparing Androids ranging from $100 to $700 and i bet you that half that market share is based on the lower Android priced phones.
iPhone focuses on the premium market their cheapest 3GS iPhone is still around $450.
You get any Android phone at any price, activate it and it considers a new activated device.
If Apple had a $100 phone you would see a big difference.
I don't get it, why are apple users on this website, isn't it about cellphones?

I was trying to point out an example but was not as thorough. Aside from that, the bigger the OSs market share and the more money it controls the better your leverage in attracting and negotiating content like music, video, apps, etc. Just trying to make a point that it doesn't matter if you have 1 or 10 phone models. What matters for leverage is market share.

... moreAgree with you on that one. Nokia makes a great hardware, too bad the exclusivity business model with WP8 limits themselve for growing even more.
It's not that WP8 is bad, but from Nokia point of view they can expand more with Android.

Developers flock to where the money is, regardless of the size of the OS. That's why more developers start on iOS and then port to Android.

I don't see a problem with people using money they earned for things they want
beanmr, 12 Sep 2012how many models of android are there and how many iphone models you need to get a grip If you compare by phone models then apple wins hands down. Unfortunately, the most important battle here is between OSs. That's why dominance is usually measured between OSs. It doesn't matter if you have 1 or 10 phones... If your OS commands a larger portion of the market then developers will flock to your system. I hope this clears things up for you.

They need to put the 920 on as many carriers as possible, including prepaid. The 710 should have been on multiple prepaid networks by now.
