    4 resolutions would be about... 99% of all major android phones, lol. 800x480, 960x540, 1280x720, and at least one other resolution of any kind.

    As a programmer myself I find this statement to be pure BS. It's not difficult to change resolution's the hardest part is to change your control scheme, which you wouldn't even need to do really, or resize your gui objects which again is really retardedly easy. Their are a lot of people making games and apps for iPhones cause its very popular. Even android is seeing growth when it comes to new developers. I hate both android and apple cause their OS's are such crap. Android is ugly and apple locks everything down tight. I loved webOS but sadly it's a dying platform. I've really liked what I've seen from windows phones so far though and I'm going to take the jump over as soon as the lumia 900 comes out.
