Why is Apple the king of the mobile app despite his lower device’ market share? #appstore #android #windowsphone #blackberry #ovi

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?
