    Well this can't be good:

    Gameloft sells 400X more iPhone games than Android | Electronista

    Don't know what the site rules are on reposting an article so I'll just give you the first paragraph.

    Gameloft today revealed that it has scaled back development of games for Android phones. The French software house made the move as just a fraction of its sales come from the Google platform: it sells 400 times more iPhone games than Android titles, the company's financial head Alexandre de Rochefort said.

    Well of course they do because up until now there hadn't been as much interest in the android OS as there was in the iphone. I don't trust anything like that until the new OS and phones have been out for awhile. While they say that now, if the new OS and phones explode in sales, and they see a jump in sales, they will likely start back up full force again. I'd give it till the end of the 2nd quarter next year. That should be a good determining factor for the new OS and android phones.
