Windows Phone 7 apps now number more than 25,000

Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 platform is growing rapidly with more than 25,000 Windows Phone 7 apps now available in the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace

Microsoft’s new mobile platform Windows Phone 7 now sports more than 25,000 applications in its native application marketplace, new figures have revealed.

Whilst Microsoft has yet to make a formal announcement on the matter, app tracker WindowsPhoneApplist last week revealed that the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace now hosts an impressive 25,076 apps just eight months after the mobile platform launched.

With free applications reportedly accounting for half of the content in the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace, games and books are the most populated sectors.

Despite racking up over 3,100 additions to its app offering every month, Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 OS still lags dramatically behind rivals Apple and Google on the app front with Google’s Android platform recently recording its 4.5 billionth app download whist the Apple’s iOS App Store now boasts more than 500,000 apps, 100,000 of which are iPad native.

Will the Windows Phone 7 platform kick into a higher gear when Nokia’s WP7 handsets land later this year? Let us now what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
