Windows Phone 7 Marketplace hits 777 apps

The Windows Phone Marketplace has been steadily adding apps for the last few days (see yesterday's flood) and to quantify that, Microsoft's Joe Belfiore Tweeted that they hit a whopping 777 apps yesterday.

That surely is quite a feat for any new mobile OS on launch (and for us in the U.S. that launch is still 2 weeks away). Will they hit the magical (and arbitrary) 1,000 apps or more for the States? We think they can do it. Either way, when we log in on November 8th, we'll have a nice selection of apps from the big studios to the indys.  Can't wait!
