    I'd call it Carrier Wars, rather than Phone Wars.

    The reason market share is important is that mobile is a "platform market." In platform markets, third-party companies build products and services on top of other companies' platforms. As they do, the underlying platforms become more valuable and have greater customer lock-in.

    Building products and services for multiple platforms is expensive, so platform markets tend to standardize around a single leading platform. As they do so, the power and value of the leading platform increases, and the value of the smaller platforms collapses.

    The PC software market is (or was) a platform market, and we saw how powerful that eventually made Microsoft back in the 1990s.

    Market share is one of the most important things. If Android was not so big, developers could still choose to ignore it, but they can't ignore that massive user base.
