"The app store model is now an expected part of any wireless developer program," said Janel Garvin, CEO of Evans Data. "And while Apple’s iPhone App Store set the pace in North America and Europe, Nokia has been busy cultivating developers outside the U.S. in their traditional offshore strongholds, and has been remarkably successful in the short time of the Ovi store’s existence.”

The survey conducted by the firm also showed that Java Data objects are the most likely way to connect back-end applications to wireless apps. The data also showed that Intel processors are targeted by wireless devs more than other vendors like ARM and NVIDIA.
