Android may be in the lead when it comes to the amount of Google devices physically out there and boss Eric Schmidt may think it's way ahead of Apple's rival iOS.
But as for the developers, it appears they still prefer iOS over Android. According to research from Flurry Analytics, 75% of new mobile app projects which use its software favoured iOS. That's up from 63% a year ago.
It's hardly a massive surprise considering the pricing structure. Although the Android Market may appeal to some, it is also easier to pirate there and it's no secret that iOS users are more prepared to pay for an app than Android owners.
And when you look at Flurry's figures, that's plain to see with every $1 that an app brings in on iOS being mirrored by only $0.24c on Android.
Still with the US in particular having 53% of Android handsets making up usage compared to 29% for Apple, there's still all to play for. And we're confident Eric Schmidt knows that.
