Apparently all app stores give 70% of the revenues generated by the paid apps to third parties. I presume we see here a clear oligopole where none of the companies want to release more revenues to the people bringing to their consumers a reason additional reason to buy their phones.
Ideally we should see the platform less attractive like Ovi or Palm sharing a higher percentage of their revenue to attract new developers but apparently such “objective” indicator doesn’t last.
No, less attractive platform ask for a lower cost of entry (the developer submission fee) from 99$ (Apple) to 0$ (BlackBerry).
Then, why BlackBerry, based on its user base is not capable to attract more developers?
