Google Google has confirmed on the official Android Developer Twitter account that the Android Market has surpassed the milestone of 100000 applications. In perspective, Steve Jobs said last week that the Apple App Store now contains over 300000 applications. Having said that, the Android Market has now arguably reached a point where the difference becomes almost immaterial in a practical sense, because even with only 100000 applications it is unlikely anyone will be short-changed for choice.

How many of the apps aren't duplicates?

If you took out all the "crap"ware, the fart apps, the apps that are the same as other (i.e. how many bejeweled type games), those stupid trumpet apps during the world cup) and so on, I'm guessing the iPhone would have much less than 100,000 apps and who knows how many would drop off the Android list too...

There should be another word than "app". Those are not "app" like Firefox, OpenOffice or Duke Nukem forever. They should call that miniapps or something but it's not apps.
