The Android Team has announced today via twitter that there are now over 100,000 apps available in Android Market. This is still far behind the amount of apps available in Apple's App Store, which consists of over 280,000 apps, but it does show that there is significant interest and development going on with Android.Nielsen's reported in August that Android sales have been strongly increasing and even surpassing the iPhone among new smart phone adopters.
"While the iPhone has been the headline grabber over the last few years in the smartphone market, Google’s Android OS has shown the most significant expansion in market share among current subscribers. Android’s rise is even more noticeable among new smartphone subscribers in the last six months where Android has nosed past Apple’s iOS in the last quarter to grab a 27% share of those recent smartphone subscribers."
With such a large and increasing market share, it will be no surprise to see the gap between Android Mark and the App Store decrease as time goes on.

I agree.

With items such as this -

Pandigital's Color eReader available running Android, the market opens up to the non-smart phone market too, similar to the iPad/iPod.

I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

I'm all about Android!

I used to care that Google now probably knows everything about me but I'm addicted to my DroidX like a fat boy is to cake.

Think about what it is now and then consider the possibilities this platform has in the future.... endless.
