Does anyone not have an iPhone?

Does anyone not have an iPhone? || “Apple to ship 86 million iPhones in ’11, researcher says” http://ow.ly/6n1Pg

The real story with this chart is not the impressive sales volume or year-over-year growth of iPhones but rather the triple digit growth projections for Android manufacturers Samsung, HTC, and LG.  Sadly Motorola is not expected to benefit from the “all boats rise with the tide” adage that seems to apply to the other Android handset manufacturers.  I wonder if Google made the right decision in moving to acquire them – they risk alienating the “big three” and pick up a luke-warm hardware business in the process (yes, yes … I know most people say the move was all about the patent portfolio).
