Vodafone (who own 45% of Verizon) jointly developed it with RIM.

AT&T was probably doing this in response to Verizon, not wanting to be caught out if one of Verizon's strategies unseated the iPhone.

After the Storm's abysmal failure, Verizon hit on Droid before finally getting the iPhone.

Android "won", the rest is history.

Android won? Based on what?

Customer satisfaction? Not even close. iOS won by a mile.

Manufacturer profits? Again, iOS won by a mile.

Profits for developers? iOS again.

Not to mention, of course, that the game's a long way from being over.
