Android Market Reaches 10 Billion Downloads

Google’s mobile operating system has reached a significant milestone with a total of 10 billion applications having been downloaded by users from the Android Market. It took the market about 20 months to serve up it first billion apps and only five more for the second billion. Impressive numbers at a rapid rate.
Now, Android is delivering a billion apps per month, the same figure that Apple revealed at the launch of its latest iPhone 4S in October, that will be reaching South Africa’s shores on the 16th December.
However, Android still has a way to go to catch up to Apple let alone surpass it, which as of October 4, had more than 18 billion app downloads by iOS device users.
Take a look at the Android Market’s growth below:
