A new survey of developers by Baird Equity Research reveals which mobile platforms they think will prosper, reports AllThingsD.

Baird surveyed 200 developers culled from a sample set of 4,300 and found that their collective outlook for BlackBerry 10 - charted on a 10-point scale from poor to excellent - had fallen to 3.8 from 4.6 in the previous quarter. Meanwhile, their outlook for the BlackBerry 7 declined to 2.8 from 3.8.

The respondents' outlook for Google's Android is 8.7, and their outlook for Apple iOS is 9.3. At 2.8, devs' outlook for BlackBerry 7 is only slightly better than then their view of Hewlett-Packard's not-quite-abandoned webOS, which still managed to rate a 2.1. And at 3.8, the outlook for BlackBerry 10 is hovering in the same range as Adobe's Flash/Air platform.


The good news for Microsoft is that their Windows Phone 8 platform is generating significantly more interest than Windows Phone 7.
