Android Market sits at 70,000 apps, 100k estimate inaccurate

updated 06:55 pm EDT, Thu July 15, 2010

Earlier estimates inflated

Google has confirmed that the Android Market currently contains 70,000 titles, far short of the 100,000 estimate recently published by AndroLib, according to numbers provided during the company's Q2 earnings call. The official numbers suggest the portal still pales in comparison to Apple's App Store, which is filled with over 225,000 apps.

The correction also points to a more linear increase in new apps for the Android platform, marking a 40 percent growth since April. If the inflated forecast proved accurate, the Android Market would have effectively doubled in the same period of time.

The company also points to 160,000 new activations for Android Devices every day. The number is impressive, although it does not mark an increase in the rate of activations since the last time Google disclosed the statistic.

As expected, Google has stopped sales of its Nexus One handset and will not continue to report costs or revenues from the device for its Q3 financials.

    Suck on it fAndroids...

    You're not even close to the App Store. I'm sure your Android Market is filled with p***, quadruplicate apps and malware. Bon appetit. Your apps aren't monitored and so the most substandard apps are uploaded. Out of those 70,000 apps, about 100 are useful.

    You're not even close to the App Store. But they've been open less than half the time as the app store. And there aren't as many Android phones, either.

    I'm sure your Android Market is filled with p***, quadruplicate apps and malware.

    As opposed to the AppStore, which is filled with farting apps, quadruplicate apps, and c***.

    Apple doesn't monitor standardness, they're looking to make sure they don't break rules. There are a bunch of crappy looking and/or working apps on the AppStore.

    Yeah that's it.

    And it sure seems like someone is really start to feel jealous. Otherwise, why all the hate.
