Windows Phone Marketplace now populated by 25000 apps, speeding up rate of growth (via Engadget)

It’s not just Apple’s App Store striding
past milestones
today, Microsoft’s Windows Phone Marketplace has also
rounded a notable marker in its development. Specifically, it’s now reported to
have passed 25,000 apps by one site tracking comings and goings within it,
though that figure’s up for debate as the other WP7 apps tracker still lists the
total at just under 25k. The main point is that the WP7 ecosystem is growing,
and faster than previously at that — it took until the end of March to accrue
11,500
apps
, a span of five months from its launch,
whereas the last 13.5k have come in the brisker period of three months. Provided
this acceleration continues, and there’s no reason to expect it’ll slow down
with Mango
on the horizon, Microsoft’s mobile OS reboot promises to be in pretty
competitive shape in time for its first anniversary — a notable feat
considering how
far behind
WinMo had fallen. Perhaps RIM can use this as an instructive
example?

Nice! :)
