The folks at Windows Phone Applist curate a list of pretty much every single Windows Phone 7 app released to the Windows Phone Marketplace. In the 177 days since the final version of the Windows Phone SDK went live and 142 days since the first devices went on sale, developers have flocked to the platform in numbers not seen in any of the other fledgling platform, ever. iOS supposedly saw a 142 day figure as well though I’ve been unable to verify this independently while Android took 11 months to get to a similar position.
While sales of these applications will likely pale in comparison to those seen in even the Ovi Store, one cannot deny the fact that developers far and wide are flocking to the platform with increasing rapidity. With increased support in the form of manufacturers like Nokia and the impending improvements coming to the platform, it’s fair to say that Windows Phone 7 appears to have a very strong future ahead of it.
