Even though Android has garnered a lot of hype these days, from a developer perspective it looks like BlackBerry is far more attractive. According to VisionMobile, BlackBerry apps are generating 40% more revenue than Android apps. This is based on a revenue index where BlackBerry apps scored 2.5 and Android around 1.5.
Another important takeaway from this report is that even though mobile is an incredibly hot market these days, very few people are actually make money. Around 30% of VisionMobile’s respondents make less than $1,000 USD per application in total. This means that around 30% of developers are actually losing money when you factor in the development time.
