According to the official @BlackBerry Twitter account, BlackBerry App World has surpassed 15,000 BlackBerry applications. Seeing how (at the time of this posting) 3835 apps are themes and 3068 apps are Reference & Books, there really are only about 8000 applications, and, even that number is debatable. There are however, well over 15,000 things in BlackBerry App World that can be downloaded, and seeing how long it took to get there compared to the App Store and Android Marketplace, is definitely worth mentioning.

According to the official BlackBerry Twitter account BlackBerry App World has surpassed 10,000 apps… sort of… App World counts BlackBerry themes in their total app number and there are over 2300 themes. We won’t even go into just how bad most of them are so lets just say that there are roughly 7700 apps in BlackBerry App World… This is just a drop in the bucket compared to the 50,000 plus apps in Android MarketPlace and the over 100K apps in the App Store.
