Errr no! Apple implements a feature that has been on jailbroken iPhones since before Android was even released (which Android then stole of course, like everything else).
More like the Apple jailbreakers and Android devs implemented a feature that was already in Palm OS (and iirc open source by june/nov 2007), which is where just about every feature in Android came from (if not various Linux implementations). Jailbreakers were in pretty sharpish iirc (mainly to steal cut+paste from every single other phone that had ever been released ), so very likely they got it in in those intervening 4 months.
Then Apple played catchup?
