A recent report by ABI Research is projecting that Android’s app revenues will reach $6.8 billion by the end of this year, almost doubling its 2012 revenues. The company is also reporting that Android revenues will increase from 59.1% to 65.9% when compared to iOS smartphone app revenues over the next twelve months.
