I'm glad that Android is the number one smartphone OS; it keeps Apple hungry to be number 2, and causes them to innovate a lot more.

Let me guess, you're an "Apple fan," but you're concerned about "Apple not innovating."
You realize of course the fallacy of looking at things this way. The entire mobile phone market isn't just Android + iOS. The majority of mobile users world wide aren't using smartphones yet. That is the market Apple is going after.

Would you prefer a lot of choice like this or would you prefer an update to your phone every 16 months like the 4S ? If you were disppointed in the iPhone 4S and plan to wait for the next release, it could be perhaps 12+months away.

If you like the Android, then there are lots of manufacturers and something in the next month might appeal to you.

Apple is targetting the high end only. Android has many manufacturers targetting the whole spectrum of users including high end.
