iPhone App downloads hit 3 billion, Google launch Nexus One handset

Apple announced earlier today that app downloads by iPhone and iTouch users have topped 3 billion. They didn't specify how many apps are now available but it's believed to be 115k+.

I rustled up a quick graph of how quickly those big milestones are being surpassed.

But with the imminent official launch today of the Google "iPhone beater", the Nexus One, plus the aggressive marketing efforts for the Motorola Droid I saw whilst I was in California over Christmas I reckon the Android platform should be an interesting one to watch this year.  There's more to apps than Apple, and if you are ignoring BlackBerry, Android and the other platforms you are missing tricks.
