Every platform maker is talking about the current number of applications that are available on their platform as if it’s the key to getting more users. To a slight degree, their right to do so, apps are really what separate your platforms from the stragglers.

What do you think? Are Microsoft and BlackBerry too much emphasis on the total number of applications they have available to users?
