Apps are a huge part of most mobile phone platforms today, especially the iPhone. Most mobile devices have access to an application store, but they aren’t all created equal.
The Palm Pre application store has caught criticism because of its meek offerings and according to one developer; the Android Market is not generating sales. Android developer Larva Labs has offered sales figures for its wares on the Android Market.
The HTC Magic is known here in the U.S. as the myTouch 3G. The device hit the U.S. market in August and has proven to be a popular device for Android fans. Unlike the G1, the myTouch 3G lacks a QWERTY keyboard and goes all touch screen.
HTC has announced that it has now sold 1 million of its magic handsets globally. The company didn't offer numbers split out on a country-by-country basis so exactly how many of those sales are from the U.S. is unknown.
