Developer Edward Kim is undoubtedly pleased with his $13,000/month from the Car Locator app in the Android Market. He states that he made this app as a side project while vacationing with family. Not bad for a side project, this app finished third in Google's Android Developer Challenge 2.
Things like this can be viewed as the bad side of having an open source platform. We all know Google's main source of income and the reason they make any product is focused on their ad revenues.

The most notable features of Sense are the built Flash capabilities and native multi-touch integration.
