I wonder how many of these are new to smartphones versus those switching from iOS? I would imagine there are a lot of Apple fans switching to Android now. I'm still on an iPhone 4 but have been thinking about going Droid. Same thing for tablets, I think our next tablet is going to be Android based and not another iPad.
