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.

Yeah, you just have to buy a mac. And a registration. And learn another variant of C.

For Windows Phone development I already had a PC. Microsoft SENT me a phone, for free AND gave me developer registration. For free. Plus, I already knew C# and XAML.

It's all relative to your existing skillsets. For example if someone followed your advice, they'd also be able to target the Mac App Store. They could optionally (if they know C#) use MonoTouch and the C# Bindings (and MonoMac for the Mac App Store).
