For start-ups without a lot of time or money, is it smarter to develop for the iPhone first or the Android OS? With 65,000 apps available, the iPhone may be the most popular smartphone, but that also means that many more apps can eclipse yours.

Panelists include Purnima Kochikar, vice president of the Nokia Community and Developer Forum; Dorrian Porter, chief executive of Mozes; Simon Khalaf, chief executive of Flurry; and moderator Mark Newhall, co-founder of IdealWave Solutions and INmobile.org.
