Once again, another week another milestone. Today, the Marketplace hit the big ol' 5,000 for available apps. What's funny about this number is on December 25th, WebOS also hit 5,000 official apps (unofficially, it's over 6,000). As we mentioned last time, WebOS has been out for 18+ months, whereas Windows Phone, just two.

And although things have slowed down a teeny bit due to the holidays, they're looking to pick up speed again this week. Of interest is the average price got bumped last week from about $1.41 to $1.52 (it's now down to $1.51). The reason for such a sharp spike? That "I Am Rich" app fetching for $500 skewed the average overall price by $0.10 in a day.

Also of interest, there are over 1,100 games available, which is nearly a fifth of all apps--so gaming is huge. Tools are next at 751 and the rest of the stats can be found at WP7AppList, of course. Here's the rest of the Marketplace history, as refresher:
