(Edit: see my comment below) That must be down to the much more competitive pricing on the G1. The HTC Magic is the same. Vodafone are offering a better deal than I get with my iPhone on O2 for £20 per month less. Tempting! - Martin Bryant
"At month five, the iPhone had sold around two times as many devices." ...and let's not forget that on top of this, Google is some 16 months behind. - Tim Tyler
the openness is what would do it for me, in spite of my mistrust of google. Although keeping my eye on the other options in the market, such as Nokia's more and more open options - Iphigenie
this is just *painfully* spun. comparing the iPhone first five months to the G1? for one thing, the G1 shipped with an App Store; the iPhone didn't have one for its first year. *despite* that, the iPhone sold twice as many devices in its first five months. headline should be "Android getting ass kicked by iPhone," not "Android compares well with Apple's iPhone if you cherry pick results, conflate fraction-of-a-percent browser share with market share, and wish real hard." - Karim
Karim, I agree with you. I have to confess that my comment above was based solely on the headline and graph above (I'm out and about on my iPhone - no time to read much in detail). Browser share by months after launch is a ridiculous metric. - Martin Bryant
