Windows Phone 7 Statistics, Shared By Microsoft [Stats]

Microsoft's WP7 is not as famous as iOS or Android but still it used(Frequently) in our surrounding. No Doubt iOS is the most used Operating System around us, after that it's Android and then WP7. But WP7 is not Bad as it looks. Microsoft is working Hard to make it good and make people use it. As They are Integrating new features in it like the Xbox Kinect integration, And Multitasking UI Feature makes it really cool and there are lots of other things Microsoft doing with WP7 to Improve it. 

Here we have got some Stats of WP7, which were shared by Microsoft, You'll be quite interested with these stats when you see them:

Apps: Microsoft WP7 Market Place have almost 11,500 Apps, In which 7,500 are Paid Apps.

Developers: There are almost 36,000 Developers Right Now, and almost 1200 Developers register every Week.

App Downloading: An Average of 12 Apps are download by Windows Phone customer every Month, It takes 1.8 days, on average, for an app to get certified by Microsoft, and 62% of apps submitted get certified on their first attempt.

But If these Numbers are compared with other OS like iOS and Android, it really amazed us.
  • Apple's iOS have almost 300,000 Apps in App Store, as of January 2011
  • Google's Android have almost 100,000 Apps in Android Market as of  October 2010
But Microsoft’s Brandon Watson doesn't Appreciate the Huge number of App, As he explains that:
“We recognize the importance of getting great apps on our platform and not artificially inflating the number of actual apps available to customer by listing “wallpapers” as a category, or perhaps allowing competitor’s apps to run on the platform to increase “tonnage.” We also don’t believe in the practice of counting “lite” apps as unique quality content. (…) Finally, we don’t double and triple count apps which are submitted in multiple languages.,”
Microsoft is yet to release their latest WP7.5(Mango) OS Update for Windows Phone 7 devices, we'll see if there will be any huge change in this OS, and will this new update attract more users toward WP7.
