Android Market almost at 40,000 apps, Nexus One is profitable During Google's earnings call earlier today, the search giant showed off strong earnings (20 percent year-on-year revenue growth and 30 percent net income growth) and additionally gave some interesting news on their latest venture, Android.
The Android Market has now hit 38,000 apps, very strong growth considering Google said one month ago that the market had 30,000 apps.

The market hit 10,000 apps in September of last year, and doubled by January.

Secondly, Google stated that the Nexus One 'superphone' is already profitable, despite numerous reports that have called the phone's launch a "failure."

Google added that they are "driving the business to be a profitable business from the get go," and are very satisfied with the sales of the phone.

Now I'm really torn between choosing an Andriod phone or waiting for Windows Phone 7.

Hmmm...I think I'm going for the Nexus One in the next few weeks...I already own a WinMo phone and I'm extremely disappointed with its performance, so I don't plan to even use a WinMo7...
