It's easy to look at the smartphone landscape and think it's all about iOS and Android and to some extent you would be right. It's hard to argue with the marketshare numbers, but just how are developers reacting to that and how does BlackBerry and Windows 8 fit within this obvious duopoly?

It turns out that the the third most popular platform behind Android and iOS is neither BlackBerry nor Windows 8, it's HTML5, but developers might not be using it to build straight browser-based apps. In fact, 27 percent of developers are using a hybrid approach with HTML5 combined with a native app.

But if you're looking for the big bucks, iOS is your best bet to make the most money, which has been fairly consistent for some time. For more details on how developers are using the various mobile platforms, check out the infographic below:
