Today, Research in Motion co-CEO Jim Balsillie said his BlackBerry App World has 20 million registered users and nearly 1 million daily app downloads.
via Apple Doing 10-20X As Many App Downloads A Day As BlackBerry.
As previously stated, The App download rate increased to a record 10,753,000 per day during the last 90 days. That makes the download rate for the iPhone platform 10x that of the Blackberry Platform. The iPhone platform is nearing 100 million installed base. Blackberry is citing 20 million registered users. I think everyone is pretty clear on where this is going.
The last four months have seen tremendous app growth. Apple grew by 59k apps while Android added nearly 10k and Nokia added 5.5k apps to Ovi.
As a percent, Palm grew the fastest with 1,352%, followed by Ovi with 827%. The slowest growing was actually Blackberry App World with a mere 56% growth.
More curious is the popularity of certain categories. Games and Books are dominant in the App Store, while Personalization and Music account for more than half of Ovi (ringtones and wallpapers?)
Finally, in terms of catalog ranking overall, Ovi climbed the league table to third spot behind Apple and Android and overtaking Blackberry App World. Palm overtook Windows Mobile Marketplace which is now dead last with 693 apps.
