I love it when the comparison iOS Vs. Android comes up. Please let us all keep in mind that iOS is available on 1 phone/pad from 1 company, where as android is being shitted out by multiple companies on numerous phones/tablets... So if iOS is growing its market share and android is loosing... damn.... Apple is KILLING IT! Lets be real. Jus Sayin' #AppleNation

Please name for me one major US carrier that the iPhone is not available for? Last time I checked, all major carriers in the US carry the iPhone, and Android is still outselling the iPhone by a large margin. If you look at global sales, Android accounts for over 75% of smart phones shipped. Apple is not "killing it", they are playing catchup.
