Re: Sad but true
1. Android is hard to develop for and major platform fragmentation is still a very major concern for many developers which is why oftentimes the the Android client is tepid because they are coding for the common baseline which is going to be 2.2 and an 600x400 resolution. This is why Android apps that are "THD" certified are so much better than the common fare.
2. iOS is a solid platform but one of the biggest problems for secondary developers is over-saturation of apps.
3. It is incredibly easy to make beautiful apps on WP7. It plugs right into VS2010 and you can use any framework you want, Silverlight is an ease to learn and because the UI framework is nearly identical per phone, fragmentation is not a very concern. Once higher end WP7 devices start coming out like the two aforementioned and you will see WP7 take off.
If Google doesn't get their stuff together with Ice Cream Sandwich, 2012 & 2013 will be the year of iOS 5 & WP7.
