BlackBerry 10 app catalog grows to 100,000 apps, Kindle and OpenTable launch today
In addition to the milestone, BlackBerry has also announced that some major apps have just become part of the catalog: Kindle, OpenTable and Wall Street Journal. What's more, the company promises that the catalog will become home to titles like CNN, The Daily Show Headlines, eBay, eMusic, Maxim, MLB at Bat, MTV News, Pageonce, PGA, Rdio, Skype, Soundhound and Viber in the coming weeks.
The first handset to make use of the BB 10 platform, the BlackBerry Z10, is expected to become available on AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile as soon as this month, while the QWERTY-enabled BlackBerry Q10 should grace the shelves of Verizon, Sprint and AT&T, also this month.

So, most of the android apps are't downloaded. Doesn't matter if the end result is pretty good. 100k is a pretty good number.

For just 3 months of being out it is a pretty big number, they're catching up to windows which has been out for what, half a decade? Go blackberry! :)

I believe this is temporary solution, it is better to have at least android version. with the time passing native apps will come up.

no instagram, no flipboard and obviously no true youtube app, the youtube app on the z10 will only redirect you to the youtube website instead of the app

It does one step better. It runs Adobe Flash. You can run the full youtube.com as it was intended. Not need for a "work around" app due to the lack of Adobe Flash support like other operating systems.

windows should open their eyes..they are wasting time on increasing the number of apps. to me what makes and OS is the number of good apps. if IOS and android didn't have the number of apps they did now.they would just look so ordinary.windows phone is an awesome OS which still has a lot of room to grow.they just need to put more effort in their market place
