Growing like that strange lump on by back
the Android Market now includes more than 50,000 applications and
although it's not even close to Apple's App Store, it seems to be
Google recently announced that the service featured 38,000 various
applications, so it is a bit odd that the number has grown so rapidly.
However, the number of Android apps offered via Android Market is
growing by 8,800 apps a month.
This means that it could reach the 100,000 mark by September, provided
that the trend doesn't slow down. However, it's worth noting that Apple
has 185,000 apps to offer, so Google still has quite a bit of catching
up to do.
