I agree with you. I use iPhone but amongst my colleagues and tech friends I'd say about 1/2 are android.
And China has more than twice as many internet users as the United States. However, I'm pretty sure the American users spend more money per capita and that it's not an accident that most YC startups target them first.

We see similar things on the web when it comes to supporting WebKit based browsers first, with Firefox and IE having secondary importance.

This is my experience, but I rarely meet an Android user who doesn't openly express that they wish they had an iPhone. There are a few moralists and uber hackers that I meet that are contrarians, but they are few and far between.
