Apple may appear to be catching up during the first month of each iphone release, but will be overpowered the rest of the year. Anyone who thinks Verizon's apple/android ratio is going to match ATT's current ratio would be naive.
Riight...you'll have to provide a citation that the iPhone is only 35% of AT&T smartphone sales. Seems a bit low to get to US market share for the iPhone unless AT&T is selling a lot more smartphones than Verizon which I doubt.
Disclaimer: Long time Apple customer and ipod touch owner, but opted out of the ios ecosystem. Resistance began with DRM in itunes, proprietary cables/interfaces, locked down OS, and draconian app store.
Ah...stuff that only free software geeks really care about. For you, Android is perfect.
