I was referring to the Android app store having 70,000 apps only few days back. That was a big rounding off and now the number of apps can be rounded off to a bigger number. Android app store has reached 100,000 apps. How many of these are useful and how many of these run on the device you own is a different discussion which Steve Jobs would be very interested in. iPhone app store is reaching 300,000 apps milestone.
Though this is a Apples to Androids comparison, Android has gained significant traction in the last six months. It found many hardware vendors like HTC, Samsung and Dell adopting the free mobile operating system. Now it has even more hardware manufacturers running Android and especially running on cheap hardware. Acer, Micromax, Videocon and Spice Mobiles are the chosen few from India. Many tablets like Binatone Home Surf, EAFT, ePad, @Pad and Olivepad are running Android too.[VIA BGR, AndroidDev]
