Android Market

The Android Market now has 38,000 applications available for download, Jeff Huber, Google's senior VP of engineering, said during this afternoon's Q1 earnings call. It's not often we get even semi-official numbers out of Mountain View, but there you go.

Also, we put quote marks around "apps" because as we all know, there are a goodly number of ringtones, skins, wallpapers and any number of other things in the Market that we wouldn't normally consider apps. So there you go.

Android Market now has 38,000 'apps'


I have a plan.

I'll set up a 16 GB thumbdrive through USB host, and make an apps2sd partition out of it.

Then Imma download every single one of them lol. Abe Frohman, app king.

Yeah, great. But still so many European countries cannot download paid applications from Android Market. It's a shame. Apple cares enough to make the AppStore available in every market they sell their products from very day one and Google for some reason can't :(
