Does the number of apps a smartphone manufacturer offers really matter to consumers? Do we really care about quality over quantity? I would answer: Yes and Probably not. Google has successfully expanded their App Market to the point where they are threatening to overtake the mighty Apple.
I would like to think that the number of apps a certain app vendor has does not affect my opinions, but more options generally means more high quality apps. This speaks to my second question. It doesn’t matter if apps are quality or not. Lately it seems like only the numbers matter.
As you can see from the chart, BlackBerry and Windows Phone 7 are not even close to challenging the two front runners. But with the possibility of BlackBerry’s (at least the PlayBook for now) being able to run Android apps this is an interesting race to follow.
