iAds Said To Mean $825M For Devs

Apple’s iAds may make a lot of developers considerably wealthier, according to a new forecast.  A professional analyst has estimated, in fact, that that developers will earn more $800 million in 2010 alone thanks to iAds.

Jason Ankeny reported late last week, “Apple’s forthcoming iAd mobile advertising effort could yield developer revenues reaching $825 million this year, according to a research note published by Bernstein Research analyst Toni Sacconaghi.”

That’s a pretty good chunk of change.  It’ll be split a lot of ways, of course, and not everyone will get an equal share.  But those facts shouldn’t discourage developers – they’re just extra reasons to be more competitive.

On a slightly different note, it’ll be interesting to see if this forecast will make developers feel more forgiving about the whole Apple-Flash thing.
