Given Android has shipped three times as many units as Windows or Apple’s iOS you have to question why so many app developers choose an iPhone first strategy. Apparently iPhone owners are bigger spenders more willing to pay for apps. Are they 4 times as willing to spend? Old media often goes for an iPad conversion of their dead tree product first. This is not a mass market solution, it excludes 80% of the operating systems shipped annually. The coming ubiquity of HTML5 cross compatibility will bring this to an end hopefully…
