PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "The biggest mobile developer study in history with 6,000 respondents from 115 countries says that while iOS developers make an average of $5,200 per month in app revenue and Android developers pull in $4,700, more developers plan to start developing for Windows Phone than any other platform. [...] That's aided, of course, by the fact that 71 percent of mobile developers are already developing for Android, and 56 percent are already developing for iOS." I'm surprised there's so little difference between income for iOS and Android developers. Reading the web, it often seems as if all iOS developers are millionaires and Android developers are poor unwashed peasants. Reality is, clearly, different.

I'm not convinced that is true.

The Android market may be large but the iPhone seems to have captured a lot of gamers that would otherwise buy PSP or Gameboy games. I suspect for certain genres like RPGs it only makes sense to port to Android if the game ends up being a big enough hit on the iPhone to where the profits can cover the expense.
