Why iPhone and not Android? This graphic may help to explain.

Every time I post something about an iPhone project Ive just finished I get a barrage of anti Apple pro Android grief. So to answer the question once and for all. Let me give you a hypothesis…imagine I run a large electronics company and I want to get in on the smart phone action. I want to bring out a device that allows you to connect external microphones to a smart phone and allow you to (A) record in stereo (B) harness the Digital audio processing on the phone…
Now looking at this quick piece of market research, would I base my business plan on graphic 1 or graphic 2 given that each platform has arguably a 50% share of the market….Which would you go for? Don’t get me wrong I have no problem with Android, in fact I carry two phones with me every day – one iPhone and One HTC Desire (android) it just that the market has a huge selection of accessories for the single form factor of the iPhone4/4s but trying to corner that market for Android means developing about 150 different versions for different case sizes and connectors and chip sets etc etc etc ? You feel me? (Sorry been watching the WIRE a lot lately 🙂 Case Closed – hopefully 🙂
