App Growth: Palm vs Apple

chart

Oh boy. This chart is just TOO GOOD not to post. It shows how long it took Apple to roll out 50,000 applications on its App Store (about 10 months) and compares that to Palm’s turtle-esque growth. After more than ten years, the Palm OS (not to be confused with the Pre’s WebOS) had only ~29,000 apps. What does that tell you? I’ll tell you what I think: Dinosaurs are dead. Move with the trend at a blinding pace or you’re not going to be able to make the cut. I’m looking at you, Palm.

  1. Thats because Iphone users like to get ripped off. It is pretty obvious that apple users are big spenders and buy every crap they can show off to other people. Palm users think before they buy stuff.
