Windows "More than 100,000 applications have now been published in the Windows Phone Marketplace and new content is currently being added at the rate of 313 applications per day. At the time of writing, 100,145 applications have been published. Of these, 26,493 were added in the last three months and 9,391 were added in the last month. These applications come from just over 23,825 different publishers." Is there anybody out there who still places any value on these numbers, whether they be for Android, iOS, or WP7? Considering virtually all Android, iOS, and WP7 applications are useless, ugly, buggy crap (with only a few being somewhat tolerable - never actually good, because good software doesn't exist), I honestly don't really care. But hey, another check mark on the list of PR talking points.

The quality of WP apps is sadly behind iOS ones (don't have an Android phone), but then again it's early days and these apps will get updates and improve.

That the number of apps is increasing does show that there is a healthy developer interest.

Personally I don't care that much for the hardware specifications, much more important are the apps. They give a mobile device most of its effective use. I have both an iPhone 4 and a Lumia 800 and I miss a number of apps on the Lumia, making the iPhone much more useful.
