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.

Not really, dev registration is also free if you're a student, or part of Nokia's developer network. Nokia seeds thousands of phones (They sent me a Lumia 800).

Anyone who really shows initiative can realistically get a device if obtaining one is an issue. Nokia is currently running a contest whereby you submit two apps and they send you a free phone.

The barrier for entry is significantly lower than Android.
