Actually not only is the % of junk about the same but many of the apps for both Apple and Android are exactly the same.
In many cases apps are not really true applications they are at best widgets that perform a minor function.
My wife and I both have the new EVO my daughter has an iPhone and is waiting for the new one. I would say 95% of the apps she has I have on my phone. Including games.
As for BB and Windows Mobile I do not see those markets growing but Android is certainly a growing market.
When you start talking about high level phones like the Nexus One, Evo and iPhone they are all quality phones and a purchase pretty much comes down to preference.
The only real reason I went with the Evo is because Wimax is very strong in the ATL area so I am almost always in 4G coverage.
With a free App I was able to sync my entire iTunes library on my Evo without any problems and I was able to simply pop out the microSD and upgrade to 32GB for 60.00.
Both operations systems have their advantages and disadvantages but I would say the iOS is still better. Not sure how much of an improvment I will see with Andriod 2.2 when it becomes available.
Also the new data cap with ATT was also a factor for me and my wife. With the Evo it is a true unlimited data plan because you pay an extra 10.00 a for 4G, there isn't even a 5GB cap on the Evo.
