Because their pretty bad. The only decent Android phones are the EVO and Nexus S.
Yeah let's forget the Galaxy phones and the HTC incredible/variants and the Nexus one and probably some others...

It's a good selling phone. Doesn't mean it's good. It's mainly people that want the iPhone but couldn't(or wouldn't) get it because it was on ATT.

The original Droid was an awesome phone, what are you talking about? Even today, overclock it to 1-1.2GHz and it stands up with the big boys such as the EVO 4G, Droid X, and to a lesser degree Nexus S.

I love my Droid 1, but all this locked boot loader and manufacturer garbage is terrible. I really hope HTC makes the next Nexus phone as the Nexus S is a great phone but outdated specs wise and I don't like Samsung's designs.

Excuse me Galaxy variants. I figured since I said Nexus S most people would assume that. The incredible was decent but I still find it annoyingly slow and sluggish compared to the iPhone and Windows phone 7.

The Droid was highly acclaimed and pretty much brought Android to its current level today. The Nexus S did nothing revolutionary and has not nor will not sell as many units as the original Droid. Go spread your ignorance on a Mac board somewhere.

This. The Droid was successful enough to pull Moto back from the brink. Not to mention massively expanding the size of the android user base.

Obviously Motorola is to butt hurt to understand that after selling the worse droid phones of all time. The Droid, Droid 2 and the Droid X. I know Verizon is behind this but as a manufacturer you shouldn't let this happen.

So much fail.

The survey by uSamp, a Los Angeles research firm, found that 44 percent of those who own smart phones that run on Google's (Nasdaq:GOOG) Android are either very likely (19 percent) or somewhat likely (25 percent) to buy a Verizon iPhone when they hit stores on Feb. 10.
You're proof that Apple products apply to the lowest common denominator.

You don't know the unspoken law that if someone makes up a statistic is automatically becomes true.

Edit: The fact is taht thios is not truely people that are going to buy the iPhone but rather people who want to.
