I was reading some articles this weekend regarding the new TouchPad by Hewlett-Packard due out this summer, and I got some statistics regarding how many apps Apple and Android have.
Here is the breakdown…
Apple has over 300,000 apps that can be played on the iPhone or iPad.
Android has over 100,000 apps that are for the Android phone.
Hewlett-Packard is trying to get developers for their WebOS platform which runs on their phones and soon to be released TouchPad.
But, the most interesting news is that Microsoft has over 150,000 registered developers for the Windows Phone 7 (WP7). Which means that If each of the developers wrote one program, they would surpass the Hewlett-Packard and Android market for available apps.
Get ready everyone, the Windows Phone 7 wave of apps are coming!
