BlackBerry 10 App Count Hits 100,000

Less than two months after launch, BlackBerry (NASDAQ: BBRY  ) has announced that its new BlackBerry 10 operating system platform has reached 100,000 apps available in its ecosystem.

The platform launched on Jan. 30 with 70,000 apps, and the company has added 30,000 over the past seven weeks, the company announced today.

Amazon Kindle, OpenTable, and The Wall Street Journal are among the new additions, with eBay and CNN expected within a matter of weeks, among others. BlackBerry executive Martyn Mallick said the early response to BlackBerry 10 has been "outstanding."

BlackBerry did not specify in its press release how many of these apps are ported versions of Google Android apps.

    While ported version are not usually as good as native apps, demand for the apps will lead to development of native versions. Just having the apps in the storefront, regardless, is a positive for a platform that was recently proclaimed DOA by the bears

    So what point are you making?

    Apple has also never disclosed how many thousands of their apps are totally useless and have never been downloaded even once.

    I have all of the apps I could ever want on my new Z10, it is the best phone available today and BlackBerry is back. Apple, well, they are too boring to be true. In addition to those 400,000 apps that have never been downloaded, there are 250,000 that have been downloaded less than 3 times. Apple really has nothing on the competition but the media hopes otherwise.
