    First, if this is the wrong place for this, sorry. Any redirect to the best place to discuss the business of Android development much appreciated.

    I expected a big splash from Android/G1. Using Google trends to track G1/GooglePhone/Android/GPhone and iPhone reveals that the G1 and Android are getting virtually no traction out in the real world, where companies make money, while iPhone explodes and Blackberry is not far behind. I decided to develop for Android rather than iPhone becuase it's open and not proprietary.

    But it's looking like Android is not going to be a lucrative place to be, the way the market is reacting to the G1 and Android.

    I'm thinking about switching to iPhone. Am I wrong? Anybody know some hard facts/numbers, or solid, verifiable information about future trends, developments, events, etc. that bear on this?

    Thanks. Hope I'm wrong.
