I agree but consider that this isn't about the device but about the apps that can be installed on the device.
Apple has a 100% market share of iPhone apps.
iPhone apps have become an industry, there are businesses build on iPhone app revenue. This has nothing to do with phones or consumer choices on phones it has to do with developer competition by forcing programmers to choose between developing apps that can run only on Apple iDevices and/or come up with apps that are platform neutral, that can be used on a variety of operating systems and not just the iPhone.
If this were about not supporting certain video formats then I would agree but this is about developers not consumers.
