Developer Economics 2010 Report

Just read this excellent 57 page report which is summarised and can be downloaded from here

It discusses much of the appstore economics and its backed up with real data from 400+ developers. At first reading I thought it was too US centric but at the end it clearly shows 1/2 the developers were from Europe.

Lots of great points but one of the best is the disparity between apps and platforms shown in the graph below...


and major conclusion

"In terms of developer mindshare, our research shows that Symbian and Java ME, which dominated the developer mindshare pool until 2008, have been superceded by the Android and iPhone platforms"

well worth a read..
