10,000 apps available for Android

If you remember  my post a couple of weeks ago, I talked about what I liked and disliked about my  newly purchased  Palm Pre.   At the time, I mentioned the biggest challenge for me was the lack of available applications, and asked Palm, to open up the store to developers!

I ran across the article in at AndroidGuys.com today:  Android Market Estimated to Have 10,000 Apps and increasing in numbers rapidly.   In the last 4 months, 100% growth .   (the Android App Catalog can be found at: http://www.androlib.com/ )     The short, but impact-full,  at least to me,  article, goes on to state that:

With the number of handsets and carriers getting in on Android, the number of apps is likely to skyrocket near 20,000 by the end of the year.

On a different article, analysts from Gartner predict that by 2012, Android will become the world’s second most popular smartphone platform behind Symbian – with Apple’s iPhone in third place.

Summary for those of us with Palm Pre devices, we  are bracing for impact!
