An iPhone would have been an awesome Christmas gift this year, but the grinches at Droid are trying their hardest to steal Apple’s whole steez by offering a competing product and application platform. A new survey by Comscor predicts a coming explosion in Droid purchases. According to the survey, 17% of consumers who are in the market for a smart phone plan to purchase a droid. This gives Droid 3% less than the 20% of consumers who plan to buy an iPhone. Artist iPhone applications are all the rage right now, but 2010 could see a handful of savy artists profit by releasing Droid apps.
