PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Exactly six months ago, Eric Schmidt made a remark that in the near future, developers might want to focus on Android first, instead of iOS. While developers haven't moved to Android-first, iOS-later en masse, there's no denying that we're seeing more and more former iOS exclusives move towards Android.

Android game development interest has actually dropped off compared to iOS.

Some of the bigger companies rushed to release on Android once it hit a tipping point but have since pulled back. Market size isn't everything, there is also purchase rate and for Android it is much lower. I suspect the real problem is that heavy gamers got onto the iphone early and see no reason to switch. Android and WP7 have a lot of late comers who rarely buy games.
