Windows Phone 7 Marketplace hits first milestone In under three weeks since launch, Microsoft has boasted today that the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace has hit its first milestone, 1000 available apps.
For comparison's sake, the iOS App Store has 300,000 available apps, the Android Market has 100,000 apps and the BlackBerry App World has a bit over 10,000.

It is important to note, however, that the old Windows Mobile platform took a full seven months to reach 1000 apps.

There are no Windows Phone 7 devices yet available to the U.S. public, with the first batch hitting the States in two weeks.

Microsoft has launched a couple of phones in Europe and Asia.

It might be worth mentioning how many apps are estimated to exist for Windows Mobile 6.1 platform, just so this article maintains a neutral, unbiased standpoint. I bet it is close to a million.
