Back in January, BlackBerry 10 launched with more than 70,000 applications in its app store called BlackBerry World. This morning BlackBerry has announced that those numbers now exceed 100,000.
In the past seven weeks, over 30,000 apps have been added to the BlackBerry World catalog, and more seem to pour in every day. This announcement comes with less than 24 hours before carriers like Verizon open up pre-orders for the new BlackBerry Z10 ahead of its retail launch next week on March 28.
Martyn Mallick, VP of Global Alliances at BlackBerry, said:
"The response to the BlackBerry 10 platform and applications has been outstanding. Customers are thrilled with the applications already available, and the catalog just keeps growing, now with more than 100,000 apps.
Top brands and application providers are joining us every day and are seeing the benefits of being early supporters of the new platform. We constantly hear from developers that the BlackBerry 10 tools are easy to build with and that we provide opportunities for app differentiation that they do not see on other platforms."
