The ITC ruling on Friday will shut off many of the imports of Andriod based copy cats and will slow down this growth pattern. The next thing we know is there will be an antitrust inquiry on Google, it is giing away Andriod as Mircocrosft gave away IE...sounds familiar?
Well, Nokia or Moto might have patents yto trade with Apple, HTC and Samsung could be in trouble. Afterall, what about the iPad battelfield? I wish all these copycats could use their technical resources to develope something on their own instead of selling copycats. They are not lower the cost nor innovate for mankind but simply to copy. American tech companies are like the Asian copycats...something is really wrong here. I am also amazed many of the Anroid supporters simply want to beat up Apple by trying to destroy on an American icon. It is really sad for the country if these people think it this way. Our nation should reward innovators, be creative with their own account. Otherwise it is senseless. Google should find their own innovations instead of trying to cut into Apple and Facebook. This is a sign of inmature.
It is not very interesting when they constantly lie about the numbers. It's that "funny" math again. They are including in their numbers the licenses of yet, unsold and unshipped phones around the world.
Apple's latest number was 450,000 apps in the app store and over 100,000 optimized for the iPad. Android has only a few hundred apps for tablets. According to comScore, iOS has 44% of the mobile market (including tablets), to Android's 28%. The latest browser numbers have iOS's lead in Web usage accelerating. The latest developer numbers show that development of iOS apps for Apple are pulling further ahead of Android -- which has lower quality apps and a tiny fraction of the revenue. So maybe your audience is Apple haters, but you're just making up the numbers at this point.
Oh Lord, Will the Hairless Ape, know as Man ever evolve past it's primate ancestor? Can they not see that Apple and Google can and should coexist? How can they be so utterly stupid as to not know that the death of one means the death of the other! Innovation requires that they challenge each other to new heights....Oh well, let us hope the next animal to rise will be more intelligent.

Strange thing to say as Android is not licensed on a per phone basis. It is free to partners. These numbers are for initial activations of new devices. It is understated as it includes only "official" devices and not the millions of knockoffs being made and sold in India and China.
It is always ironic that the argument in defense of Apple's innovation always begins by stating how android and other manufactures copy Apple, but the same people that make this argument either one ignore, or are ignorant that Steve Jobs, on camera, blatantly states how he got the idea for Graphical User Interface from Xerox who is its original creation. Its in an interview on youtube, Just look up Steve Jobs and Xerox on youtube.
Secondly, to say Android copies iOS is ignorant also, since the iPhone did not get released until 2009, and Google purchased Android in 2005 for mobile purposes. Android software was already being developed before Google purchased it, so to say Google just copies is blatantly ignorant and is just an uninformed statement with little to no research done.
Thirdly, to talk about innovation, perhaps you did not watch Google I/O in May 2011, when Google spoke about Android 4.0, also known as Ice Cream Sandwich. You have no idea what Google is getting ready to do with Android. Mobile devices were just the beginning, but what Ice Cream Sandwich will do will be revolutionary in the appliances and entertainment industry.
Apple makes great products, but to say they are the great innovators is a misnomer.
