Quote: Florent Pillet, Palm Developer

iPhone SDK – First Thoughts points out:

Apple takes a 30 percent cut from developers selling apps.

To which well-known Palm Developer Florent Pillet replied in Comments:

You’ve never developed nor sold Palm software, have you? The tools suck, and the ESDs (Electronic Software Distributors) take a bigger cut of the pie — 40% to 50%, sometimes more. And you don’t get the convenience and integration of the iTunes Store, for that price. I find Apple’s cut pretty reasonable.
