Its obvious song and apps can be purchased at itunes so its most likely that users with easy access to the itunes will also be the ones to spend the most in there and about the iphone getting cheaper bills, well don't know how data works on us but here iphone data has a cheaper value than regular smartphone by arround $5-$10 on a plan depending on the company

Or it could be that iphone users have more expensive phone bills and actually pay for most of there music on itunes (like idiots) while BB users and Android users just download for free. It could also be that apps for the iphone typically cost more than apps for BB and Android. Pull your head out of your ass.

Err the coment there is not defending apple at any rate dude ...I will buy an iphone the day jobs dies... but I don't like to say that we download music for free >_> let's keep that a secret from them ;p
Ill repeat myself in the simplest way i can find

-Apple regular users(jailbroken wont count) have to buy their stuff on itunes while android winmo and bb can also get their stuff somewhere else.

-HERE phone companies (as a actic) will sell iphone data/voice combo cheaper that just getting them both together on another kind of smartphones why? Cuz they want to move those expensive iphones from stock.

Actually apps for iPhone typically cost significantly lower than blackberry, and even though android has more free apps, if you compare apps that are on both platforms android versions are typically, but not always, slightly more expensive. Blackberry apps just don't rake in as much because there aren't as many and it's not an app-centric platform. As for android. Like I said there are more free apps and regular apps tend to be a dollar or 2 more even for the simplest apps. These two factors mean people will start to get the free apps and stop soon after because they don't care for shovel-ware and they won't get as many apps because they don't wanna pay 2.99 for a wallpaper app. Ultimately leading to android also being less app-centric than iOS. Add to these factors markets that are t very streamlined, not so easy for casual browsers to find what they want or not be able to find great new content and you have many legitimate reasons BB and android users don't spend as much on apps.

"but that's just my opinion I could be wrong."

well i personally have bought apps for my android and had no problem and searching for apps can be done with appbrainhttp://www.appbrain.com/
and fas web installer
Will install everything you hit on install (except for paid apps but you just need to sync those and will have them installed in a flash)

I personally have seen little times the itunes store for the iphone but for my friends usage I'm tempted to believe they spend a little too much money on apps that only show something off.
