    To Be completely honest this is an Insane Amount. Like seriously do I just call the Guinness World Records now or wait another year and see the number double? Now I see how Apple has the money to poop out a new "i(insert random word here)" every year because not only are they milking every piece of technology they have but are also selling applications to everyone and their Mother.

    New app, measure how many apps are sold worldwide!

    Also in the last line

    How will this effect the release of the Nintendo 3DS and the as-yet-unannounced PSP2 – will we still be as willing to pay full price for hard copies of video games when accessing content via the app store is cheaper and easier?

    Are they really comparing their apps to 3DS and PSP2 games?

    WOW thats a big amount
    But comparing this to the 3ds and psp2?!?

    How can this "device" compete with the two if this device has some POOPY APPS, and WEIRD BORING MINIGAMES?!?
    -----------------------------Im not a troll, not meant to offend someone.. but comparing it to the 2 really is dumb-----------------------------------------------

    Old news is old.
    It was already posted, along with the details of a contest to win a 10000 iTunes card if you were the 10 billionth's downloader.

    Angry Birds is a LOT better than a lot of the shovelware the DS or PSP have - which is really a LOT. And the iPhone isn't really crap, some games are even better on iDevices than PSP/DS, like Madden, Call of Duty, etc...obviously Apple isn't going to contend nor can with Nintendo exclusives, but the market is growing and let's see what the 3DS puts on the table apart from headache reports.

    Not impressive. iDevices have been around for how long now? And how many of those apps are free apps and how many are demos and everything? Honestly, not that impressive.
