iphone-android_The latest report from mobile applications reporting software maker Distimo finds a pattern no one has explained yet, but one that mobile app followers will want to know: iPhone apps, Distimo’s data shows, tend to be more popular in the geographic region they are produced. The top paid apps bought the United States differ a lot from the top apps bought in the UK.

On Google’s Android market, there’s no such distinction. Two applications, Power Manager Full and Advanced Task Manager, are the most-bought apps everywhere.

One more thing … applications Camera Genius and Camera Zoom are both among the top five most downloaded paid apps for the iPhone. I still have trouble believing Apple deliberately chose to leave a camera off the iPod Touch as some sort of clever product differentiation strategy. I believe the other rumor, the one that says the camera failed in pre-production tests. When the next iPod Touch sprouts a camera, I’ll be re-reading old blog posts and laughing at them. Yeah, I have no life.
