Marketplace hits 9000 apps, already has more ‘real apps’ than Blackberry App World


A little over 2 weeks ago, on the 11th February we hit 8000 apps, and today, Marketplace crosses the 9000 app milestone. The number is rapidly closing in on the 20,000 apps claimed by Blackberry app world in February 2011, and of course is devoid of the wallpapers and themes which form about 5500 or around 25% of the so-called “apps” there, and the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace only has 507 “books and reference” apps versus the massive 6100 in App World, 4000 of which come from the same spam publisher in App World.

Effectively, in terms of real apps, Windows Phone 7 is already the 3rd ecosystem, in USA at least where Symbian is not a factor.
