Default Windows Phone 7 marketplace now has over 25,000 apps

While the marketshare may be small, the Windows Phone 7 marketplace has hit the 25,000 mark in 280 days from when the marketplace first launched. While still a far cry from the 500,000 applications available on the Apple App Store, the amount of applications available on the marketplace within a short period of time proves that the Windows Phone 7 will be a viable competitor in the smartphone arena.

the influx of apps is awesome and i'm excited to see what is unleashed when mango comes out. Microsoft also stopping repeating apps from flooding the marketplace has been a good effort. another good point is that the apps WP7 gets ain't just carbon copy clones of apps for the robot or the fruit phones.

I expect when Mango comes out, the Marketplace will see a surge of apps. I am very happy to see Microsoft to achieve this milestone. It's good to see someone compete effectively against Apple and Google, and this is coming from a person who primarily uses Apple products.

This is nice and all, but didn't MS say that WP7 apps would be cross-compatible with the Zune HD?

Guess I was mistaken. It would have been nice to be able to use some of the WP7 apps though.
