Since Apple's App Store has proven to be such a successful place for third party developers to sell applications for the iPhone most other smartphone makers have come out with their own stores for selling applications. According to a new report from Skyhook Wireless, there is a significant difference in the cost of applications across the App Store, Blackberry App World, and the Android Marketplace.

The report looked at the cost of location aware application in the three stores and found that location aware apps in the Blackberry store were at least four times more expensive than similar apps in the other stores.

The average selling price of a location aware app in the Blackberry App World is $13.60, the same type of app averages $3.60 on the Apple App Store, and only $0.84 on Android Marketplace. The Apple App Store had the most location aware apps available at over 2,300.
