There is a lot of buzz about some independent developers and newbies who have made between $100,000 to $500,000 by simply creating their first Android application and putting it up for sale on the online Android Market. Most successful iPhone developers have migrated to the Android Market after their success on the App Store, although there are many developers who have directly started to first develop on Android.
Android development is easier to jump on to given the fact that it is Java based platform and that developers do not have to purchase an expensive iPhone or a separate Mac OS and also pay yearly SDK license fees to Apple. The approval process and distribution of Apps via the online Android Market is also more “friendly” than the App Store.
