Are apps able to make money in Android Marketplace? (or, what is the business case?)

 An acquaintance who runs a small business (not in the mobile area) and
employs one programmer, is wondering whether to develop apps for
Android Marketplace. He wondered  whether it is financial sense to do
so and I recommended the Android marketplace, but do not want to
mislead him. While the commercial success of the iPhone marketplace is
well known, what has been the commercial story of apps sold in the
Android marketplace?
How many downloads per month, how much sales volume in $, average
price of an app, how many are free downloads vs paid, how many apps,
how many G1 phones are around etc. Are there any reliable statistics
from Google on this?

Is debugging enabled in your application's manifest? You can only debug 
applications that are marked for debugging.

Hi, Is there some way to attach de{*filter*} to a process running in the emulator via eclipse? I am trying to debug the following scenario. 1.) Kill a process via pressing the red terminate button from Debug perspective in eclipse. 2.) Relaunch the app in emulator. When the app is relaunched in step 2.), I want to step through the de{*filter*}. I am unable to figure out a way to attach de{*filter*} to a process running in the emulator. I would really appreciate any pointers regarding this. Thanks a lot, --MB.
