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.
