[color=#1C2837][size=2]I posted this in the cellphone/pda group, but people barely go to that section. Anyway, here is a copy and paste.
I'm assuming all three have an app/game marketplace that developers can publish their game on.

Questions pertaining to all 3 OS's :
How much are the licenses to put the game out on their respective market?
Do I need pay to develop games on system or just only when I publish?
How much percentage does each company take from each sale?
Which has the largest user base? I'm assuming iOS > Droid > Windows Phone 7.
What graphics API does each system use and which has shader support? I know iOS currently supports OpenGL ES 2.0 and Windows Phone 7 does not (?) support any shaders.
Any requirements when I want to develop on their respective system? I know that if I want to develop on the iPhone/iPad I need to have a Mac with Snow Leopard OS on it.
What programming languages am I able to use when developing games on the Android and Windows Phone 7?
