Ovum: Google Android to be more important to developers than iOS by 2013

“Ovum on Monday predicted based on a developer survey that Android would become more important to developers than iOS by the start of 2013,” Electronista reports. “While Apple would still be the other major platform creator to write for, the research firm saw the momentum in hardware leading to Google taking the edge. Ovum didn’t give ratios for how much of a lead it expected.”
Electronista reports, “Google still has numerous obstacles to overcome among developers, however, the biases of the store and users towards free apps. Despite a larger device market share, Android apps make a sixth the revenue of iOS apps and have more troubles with discoverability and piracy.”
