    The Android Marketplace is more profitable than Apple's App store? Well, at least for one developer it is.

    If apple would start selling a purse/handbag with every iphone they would do better in sales numbers. Just leave the android phones for men.

    Would likely gain more ground if it was tampons and midol.

    Must be a sad life in which you must justify your sub-par purchase by insulting the ones of others.

    I would expect nothing less from an MMO Title. I would hazard a guess there are iPhone users who don't even know what an MMO is.

    Unsurprising, considering the genre of game. Anroid is a computer geek's platform of choice, and such people typically also play MMOs. I'd like to see sales number on a mainstream game, maybe Angry Birds or one of the many Sudoku apps.

    How's that $700 pile of crap tablet you're locked into for 2 years working out for you? Got any tablet software for it yet, or just upsized phone apps? :p

    My experience on selling the same app on both platforms has been the complete opposite by a magnitude of 7x.

    Quite odd.

    I never insulted anyone. I expressed my opinion on the device they choose to use, which in my opinion is the worse mobile os currently. They on the other hand choose to directly insult the user. As I said, must be a sad life.

    Way to fail at using the statement correctly.

    Must be a sad life where you can't take humor in simple things such as light mocking in jest over something as trivial as a cell phone.

    Nothing valid about a "my phones better than your phone" argument.

    Don't care either way on this, as long as the phone makes calls, play music, and can get my email and internet, could be a Blackberry for all I care. I've noticed that when I get apps, they are a 5 minute wonder, and then forgotten.

    Interesting, there's been a number of articles floating around that Windows Phone is more profitable than Android.

    They aren't likely to buy iPhones.
