The WP7 Marketplace has reached 100,000 apps, faster than Android but slower than iOS. Kevin Tofel at GigaOM thinks this doesn’t mean a whole lot:
Here’s the funny thing and part of the reason that the number of apps really means little, or not as much as it used to. Guess where the most apps are available for Windows Phone devices? According to the data, the U.S. leads the way, with 77,450 of the 100,000 available. Going back to the China example, where the phone is allegedly doing well: There are 33,063 apps available to Windows Phones in China. Something doesn’t add up.
