Windows Phone apps now total 11,500 'without padding,' Microsoft says

Matt Hamblen, Computerworld | March 31, 2011
Microsoft bragged Thursday about growth in its Windows Phone 7 (WP7) developer community one year after its birth, but immediately got blasted for not disclosing developer revenues.

Watson said he's most excited that 40% of registered developers have published their apps, although he recognized another 60% have not.

(The number of apps, at 11,500, when compared with the number of registered developers, at 36,000, would indicate the registered developers who have published apps is less than 33% -- below the 40% that Watson claimed. Microsoft officials could be reached to explain the contradiction.)

Noting the 40-60 split on developers who have published or not, Watson added, "That's incredibly exciting when you consider the amount of creativity which is still forthcoming."
