Is it any wonder that iPhone sales are falling behind Android sales?

1) There is more than one phone using the Android OS compared to the iPhone's offering of two storage options (Reaches more pockets)
2) In the US, most Android phones are on networks other than AT&T (Not the most favored of cellphone networks in the US)
3) There is a new iPhone due out in the next few months (anyone who's in the know will be holding off until June 17th?)

I'm not saying that the iPhone is better than the Droid, but now might not be the right time to be judging it's popularity

I can't remember the last time I went out of my way to look up a movie trailer to see if I wanted to see the movie. It HAS happened, but not nearly on the same scale.

When you go to a movie the other movie demos are forced upon you. You rarely look up movie demos because you rarely need to, game demos are an at-will experience.

I don't go to the theaters that often, so If I want to see a trailer, it will be online more than during the wait for the main feature to appear.

It is easier to change the specification to fit the program than vice versa.
