Windows Phone Marketplace hits 1,000 app milestone

Well that didn't take too long at all. Just the other day we hit 777 apps in the marketplace and today, just two weeks after Windows Phone 7 went "live" to the world we have hit 1,000.

We still have 14 days before the U.S. roll out, meaning at this current pace we could easily approach 2,000 releases to the Marketplace, in line with earlier estimates. Although WP7 has an uphill battle in terms of market presence, having this many applications available this early is a great sign.
