Apple iPhone 4S pre-orders sold out, currently at 1-2 week shipping

AppId is over the quota

"Really, 2 years ago they were the big dog on the market and in that same time they've seen their phone market Share slow down and Android Double their Market Share in half the time... "

Only when you look at a small segment of the market of smartphones (less than 1/3) and only when you look at "market share". This is a 100% false statement when you look at the mobile industry as a whole. If you look at "profit share", the picture is obvious. Any company making Android will eventually go bankrupt.

"Do you know what this means? Eventually the industry will standardize on the platform with the largest market Share"

Again, this is a 100% false statement. The industry will stabilize on the platform that has the greatest potential for wealth creation. Given Google is about the destruction of wealth, Android may have lots of "units" but its eco-system, software, games and available media will continue to be very sub-standard.

"and Android already has [three] platforms (ereaders and smartphones and [MP3 players]) and Apple with iOS has MP3 players and Tablets [and smart phones] The problem here is that both of the Android Markets are growing and one of Apple's markets is shrinking while the other is growing."

NOTE: I corrected your errors above.

Actually, two of iOS's platforms are growing and one market is in harvest. Apple however owns the MP3 player market. Android's MP3 player market, like its tablet market, has been still born. Without the carriers to push the product, only fanboies are buying Android tablets and MP3 players.

Really? 1.8 million Android tablets sold to consumers in 9 months? That is all? This is not impressive given the millions upon millions shipped. NOTE: 500,000 of those are in the last 6 weeks.
