Majority of Android Developers Aren’t Coming from Within Google

With the recent launch of iTunes App Store and the buzz about Android Developer Challenge,Ben Lorica at O’Reilly Radar did an interesting study based on statistics of thousand of mailing lists and the occurrences of mobile platform in the messages.

The results are quiet interesting. Linux-based platforms are more represented than iPhone and iTunes App Store, even if the growth of iPhone related messages have risen since the launch of Android.

But the most funny thing is that a majority of the “job proposals” for Android aren’t from Google. They are mostly from outside sources, as opposed to Apple who posted the majority of iPhone related job. I don’t doubt that by the official launch of the first Android Handset (by October, 1st?) that will radically change.

What do you think ?
