Two things I can think of that may be factors, whether or not they make complete logical sense.

1. Fragmentation

2. Prevalence of Mac Book Pro as dev machines.

2. The Android development sdk works just fine on Mac OS. I would argue that certain parts of the Eclipse+ADB combination are actually more developer friendly than Xcode.
