iOS or Android? Why not develop for both?

Over at the AppStore HQ blog they are having a list with every published developer on Apple's App Store and Google's Android Market. Curious if there are any crossing points between these two communities on account of Android's growing popularity, they ran a little statistics exercise with the deduction method.

Turns out that nearly 1400+ of them are writing for both platforms, and Apple has four times the ten thousand developer community that Android has. What is significant here is that a lot of those cross-platform developers are behind some very popular apps. However, smaller companies are still finding it pretty hard to find the needed resources to port their apps to Android. Google asks for a $25 sign up fee from developers even for free apps, and paid content is available only in a few countries so far, which kind of explains the situation.
