After working at Best Buy for years, I can tell you that yes, android has a bigger market share, but that's only because they flood every carrier with 5+ phones per season. Apple... 2 phones, maybe three if you count the 3GS that AT&T still carries. Of course they have a higher margin of phone sales, ESP. When most of their phones sell for a dollar. These dollar phones, however, would never be operational with the BMW because as soon as they launch, their operating system and processor are obsolete. Aside from rooting, they're useless in a year or less. I don't dislike phones like the new EVO or the S3 but they can't measure up to the security and operation of the iPhone... No way. BMW would be dumb to devote initial app development to multiple devices when apple has the support and marketing that it does.
