Your original article also stated that Apple's little pop was due to new model introductions, which IMHO is indicative of a temporary surge and not a long term trend. Apple is a single manufacturer, while Android has a larger number of quality competent manufacturers all releasing new products. So while Apple can have an occasional surge, there are multiple opportunities for Android surges feed from multiple sources.
