We can finally put an official number on the apps in the Android Marketplace: 30,000. That's more than double what was available in December, a crazy fast rate of growth. And they're going to need to keep it up.
The numbers come from straight from Google via MobileCrunch, while the Apple App Store had 150,000 apps as of their iPad pre-order announcement earlier this month. So although the Android Marketplace's expansion is impressive, they're still outnumbered a 5:1. At least.
