Android Marketplace – sell apps or free apps with ads?

There’s been some discussion online from Android application developers comparing their monthly income of Android apps vs iPhone apps. The iPhone has such a massive user base at this point that it’s hard to make these comparisons, but what I find interesting is whether to make money from selling your apps or give them away free and include banner apps inside them. If sales are currently low on the Android marketplace then you’re not going to get rich selling 99c apps, but are you going to do any better with free apps including banner ads? Here’s an interesting discussion <a href="http://www.4feets.com/2009/02/selling-apps-or-running-ads/"here, and here’s another comparison from an established iPhone and Android developer.
