When we saw that the Android market enjoyed over 9,000 new app uploads last month, it was apparent that a growth spurt was imminent and that we’d see the app count continue to rise at alarming rates. Now, thanks to estimates by AndroLib’s market-probing analysis, we can safely say that the Android market has reached 50,000 apps.

Whether or not you treat this as a milestone (due to the fact that a lot of apps aren’t worth much) is your own prerogative to play with: we’ll just take solace in the fact that Android is housing so many developers just over a year and a half since the OS appeared on its very first piece of hardware. I’m glad to see the Android market continue to grow, personally, as many developers realize that there’s a potential install base there that isn’t to be ignored.
