Over 100,000 apps have been published to the Windows Phone Marketplace so far

Well, it looks like the Windows Phone camp is seeing some recognition as it appears as though Microsoft’s mobile platform has just surpassed the 100,000 apps mark. Specifically, a report from All About Windows Phone mentions that there have been 100,145 apps published to the Windows Phone Marketplace so far, which is a considerable feat knowing that Apple and Google took 16 and 24 months respectively to reach the 100,000 apps milestones.
Interestingly enough, the 100,145 figure isn’t the exact number for the amount of apps currently available in the Windows Phone Marketplace. Rather, it’s found that 10,357 are no longer there – due to being withdrawn by the Redmond based company or simply by the developer. Moreover, another 1,492 are in limbo, or staging, which means they are either waiting for an update, in beta, or some other unknown reason.
Therefore, the currently tally for available apps in the Windows Phone Marketplace stands at 88,371. Indeed, it’s not a bad figure, even more when it took 14 months to reach the 50,000 apps mark, and another 5 months after that to reach its current tally of 100,000.

Even though 100,000 isn't the exact number just like the article stated, the growth rate of the Marketplace is still pretty amazing.

That is ironic coming from someone with a ref to a Chinese state and show...considering that their government hacks and steals info and controls people much like apple controls its users.

i just heard the news that playstation is going to dominate android... If that is true, windows will concentrate more on xbox to compete... I have a bad feelings that this is a sign of obselete of app... Because most apps are boring (just me) and console game is more fun. If apps is obselete... Then iphone is in danger...
