    Why is this a loss for Android? Because it's one more data point that shows that despite hundreds of models outselling a few iPhone models, it's the iPhones that get actively used by their owners. When you measure Web usage you see it. And now when you see unlimited cell plans coming to an end you see it.

    AT&T had unlimited. AT&T got the iPhone. AT&T drops unlimited.

    Verizon had unlimited. Verizon got the iPhone. Verizon drops unlimited.

    Sprint had unlimited. Sprint got the iPhone. Sprint drops unlimited.

    Particularly in the case of Verizon and Sprint, they went heavily into the Android world, pushing Android hard and selling boatloads of units. Unlimited plans? No problem.

    Then they get the iPhone, and wham! Unlimited is suddenly a big, big problem for them.

    People use the iPhone for heavy-duty Web usage.

    There is already a thread on this, but like it has been said, this is not for smartphones (except tethering), only mobile broadband cards and hotspots.
