Developers less interested in Android

This TechRadar article says a recent survey of 2,173 out of Appcelerator’s 280,000 mobile platform developers shows a decline of interest over the last year in developing for Android smartphones from 86% to 78% and for Android tablets from 75% to 67%. An Appcelerator spokesman thinks that the wide variety of versions of the OS in use is turning developers away. By contrast Appleā€™s approach of tightly controlling the hardware and OS reduces compatibility issues at the expense of choice.
