The Android SDK is relatively easy to work with (and Eclipse is a  
useful dev environment). On the other hand, XCode iPhone OS  
development is quite easy and intuitive and has greater market  
penetration. Though folks always hear horror stories of Apple's market  
restrictions, the truth is, they accept ~96% of all apps -- and when  
they don't accept, they provide some reasoning.

Overall, there's no reason folks couldn't develop for both over time.
