Speaking as a manager that hires people to build mobile apps, I can say that iOS will continue to be my first build because of the proven track record of where the money is spent. The advertisers that pay for our company want to advertise to those that spend money.
To those that try to hold almighty market share as the magic number, I would remind everyone that with 4% of the global market share in mobile, Apple took 52% of the profits (and that was just Q3 2011, it doesn't include the record breaking quarter that they just had).
If someone shows me actual reported numbers (not trends, not predictions, not a crystal ball) that I can make more money developing for Android first, then I'll be the first to pay my developers to go there.
Money is what drives this market, and iOS is where the money is.
