You make hay about not "falling into facile traps" but your last couple of responses take the cake for lack of awareness.
So, iOS is sold by one company, Android is sold by many. And? What's the point of that observation? Android is winning the battle, the fact that that's through a consortium of companies isn't really the point (unless you're desperate enough to make meaningless comparisons, of course).
