Hits it much earlier than expected.


Though the operating system Windows Phone 7 hasn’t quite found its footing in the marketplace, it now has one solid achievement to boast about – it has hit the 50,000 app mark in its Marketplace days before it was expected to. lets us know of this milestone and its a pretty big deal for the OS, since the entire life of an OS depends on how many users really make apps for it since that’s a very lucrative draw and the reason why iOS and especially Android have been gaining traction (and why Blackberry isn’t). The report suggests that the OS will reach 100,000 mark by summer 2012 at the rate that it’s going at.

Are you excited about the OS?
