Distimo's January 2011 report which focuses on the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace and the Google Market revealed:
Marketplace in facts takes the growth rate crown, at 30%, followed by the Android Market, at 18%. The most interesting aspect of the graph however is that the iPhone app store only grew 1% month on month. With such large growth rates from the iPhones competitors we could see in the future the quantity of Android apps overcome the massive iPhone app store.
Much of the growth from in the WP7 marketplace will likely be from developers porting their apps from other platforms, and the graph shows WP7 has already managed to capture the interest of more than a quarter of the top 200 cross platform developers.
The next graph shows that even with the minute numbers compared to Android and iPhone, the WP7 developers have already passed the WebOS App Catalog and with the Blackberry App World in its sights, and on the way to pass the Blackberry App World likely in the next 4-6 months.
Here's the completed report:
