I would think that the iPhone will strike back. Verizon used to strangle hold it's app store until Google showed them the light. Now, Android is snowballing, Apple will have to answer, especially since AT&T is about to get in on the Android wagon. They'll put out a new and improved iPhone that'll be open sourced, and the fanboys will be all over it. This will be a battle that'll go on for more than a few years, and w/ all the healthy competition, the winner should be us.
This is my optimistic hypothesis.
