On Nexus One day, and right before CES, Apple has posted an official press release, a press release which informs us that the iTunes App Store has surpassed 3 billion downloads. It was only 98 days ago, on September 28th, that Apple declared 2 billion downloads, and now, just over three months later, another billion apps have been consumed by iPhone users. With over 125,000 active applications available in the U.S. store, Apple seems to be proving that variety is the spice of life, and will keep users hitting the download button — over 10.2 million times per day in the last 98 days to be exact. For a relative comparison, there are around 18,000 applications available in Android’s Market and just over 4,000 applications available for RIM’s BlackBerry. Steve Jobs was quoted as saying, “the revolutionary App Store offers iPhone and iPod touch users an experience unlike anything else available on other mobile devices, and we see no signs of the competition catching up anytime soon.”
