WP7 To Have More Apps Than webOS By New Year’s

The official webOS app count hit 5,000 today. The Windows Phone 7 Marketplace is at 4870.  The Windows Phone Marketplace averages 111 apps per day according to WP7Applist. The webOS market took three months to gain 1,000 apps so it’s growing at around 11-12 apps per day. So deduction comes into play and…by the end of 2010 the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace will have more apps than webOS even though it’s a lot newer. And beyond that, it’s growing at a staggeringly faster pace of approximately ten-fold and only picking up speed.

To be fair, the webOS app availability could be as high as 6,000 apps if you add  webapps, betas, homebrew, international apps and themes, but it really doesn’t matter. That just buys a little time. Windows Phone  will have more apps than webOS’s by even the most liberal calculations in favor of webOS in near future, and that should be before the end of January, 2011 unless something dramatic happens.

One down…
