I think one point in this that people often overlook is that Apple is in a situation of their own making, from the app store submission process to the physical devices. So if they want, they could push out an update to change their situation dramatically. Also they seem to be able to play hardball with carriers to get the features they want to work with their phones.

Android, however, is looking less powerful as a platform because it is only one part of the OS/interface/hardware/carrier system, so they can't stop every Android handset that comes out from having a different UI and features. This is arguably better for the consumer, but I think it's worth realizing that Apple could really change their approach a lot more effectively than their competition.
