And if the Android marketplace isn't profitable? An "open" OS sold to a bunch of people who don't believe in paying for software isn't going to support a lot of developers. Google itself is "unhappy" with the state of the marketplace. It's filled with tons of crappy apps that manage to hide the very few gems. Despite Android's parity in market share, by all reports actual sales are a fraction of those for iOS.
