flurry logo-300x192I’m sure you’ll agree the Android market is constantly growing with a reportedly 20,000+ apps and games  already in the marketplace. Well according to mobile analytics firm Flurry in an interview with ‘Business Week‘, they predict their could be a whopping 150,000 apps this time next year.

Chief Executive Officer of Flurry ‘Simon Khalaf’ said because of efforts by Verizon Wireless, Motorola Inc. and Google to promote the system “A lot of developers have come onto the Android platform”.

He goes on to say Apple’s site for its iPhone and iPod touch devices “may have at least 300,000 applications by the end of next year. Google will have 100,000 to 150,000”

Very interesting considering the predicted momentum of growth for Android’s marketplace is huge, 4 – 6 times the size it is now in fact.  Though Apple’s app store is considered to be larger in apps I believe “it’s quality, not quantity” that counts. We’ll have to wait and see what 2010 brings however either way I’m looking forward to what Android overall has to offer!

What do you think? Is this prediction from Flurry what you’d expect for the Android Marketplace in 2010?
