Yesterday we published an article which said that the Android market has now reached one billion downloads, in the article we mentioned that the Android market has now reached 100,000 applications from data provided by AndroLib.
This was in fact incorrect as Google has now announced that the Android Market now has over 70,000 applications, which is still an impressive number of applications, although it is quite a way from Apple’s App store which has over 225,000 applications.
Google also announced that there are now 160,000 activations of Android devices every day. The Android market is still growing at a decent pace, with around a 40 percent increase in applications since April, whether this is enough to catch Apple remains to be seen.
