Windows Marketplace hits 9000 apps, to reach 10,000 app milestone mid-March
The Windows Phone 7 launch might not have been the most successful one out there, but WP7 nevertheless is a steadily growing market.Especially when it comes to apps – the Windows Marketplace hit9,000 available apps recently, growing with a healthy rate of nearly2,000 apps a month. WP7 has been out for only a couple of months, but at its current pace the Marketplace will pass HP's App Catalog, which registers some 10,000 application as soon as in March.
While it's still miniscule from theviewpoint of the Android Market (counting over 200,000 apps) and theApp Store (at more than 350,000 apps), soon theWindows Marketplace might also outscore RIM's App World, which has nearly20,000 applications. Microsoft does not yet have the strongestecosystem, but the number of developers for its platform isincreasing. In addition, its collaboration with Nokia might giveRedmond the needed boost to reach to an even wider audience and buildan ecosystem around that user base eventually. One thing is certain - it all comes down to the quality of the apps and that's best judged by the user. So let us know your opinion on the matter in the comments below!
