Android market is no where close to iPhone yet, but the growth is remarkable. Every analyst is speculating that 2010 will be a big year for Android and supporting that speculation is the 20,000 apps milestone that Android hit today. The number of apps was only 10,000 just five months ago.
Another interesting fact is that 62% of these applications are completely free. With another 40-50 Android based handsets launching next year, these 20,000 apps would find ample users.
Combine this with Google’s own phone Nexus One and you have got yourself a mighty strong market.
