  • 2. Distimo Report November 2010 | United States NEW AND NOTEWORTHY This report covers the Apple App Store for iPad, the Apple App Store for iPhone, BlackBerry App World (worldwide), Google Android Market, Nokia Ovi Store, Palm App Catalog and Windows Marketplace for Mobile (Windows Mobile 6.x) during October 2010 in the United States. Data on Windows Phone 7 Marketplace was collected during the timeframe November 1 - 22 2010 in the United States. The major findings are: • Games are significantly more popular in Windows Phone 7 Marketplace than they are on Windows Marketplace for Mobile (6.x). This mirrors the way that Microsoft positions Windows Phone 7 as a more consumer-oriented platform. • The price of applications in Windows Phone 7 Marketplace closely mirrors the prices in other application stores, as opposed to applications in the Windows Marketplace for Mobile (6.x), which are significantly more expensive. • The prices of the most popular applications in Windows Phone 7 Marketplace are even more in line with the other stores: 57% of the 100 most popular applications are priced below $2.00. For the other stores, this is between 51% and 67%, except for Windows Marketplace for Mobile where only 37% of the 100 most popular applications is priced below $2.00. • The Windows Phone 7 Marketplace launched on October 21, 2010, and has grown to 2,674 applications as of November 22, 2010. In comparison, Windows Marketplace for Mobile has gathered only 1,350 applications to date since the store launched over a year ago. • All ten of the most popular paid applications in Windows Phone 7 Marketplace are games, with prices ranging from $2.99 - $6.99. There are only two games among the ten most popular free applications in this store. • Mirroring the Windows Marketplace for Mobile, a large portion of the ten most popular applications in Windows Phone 7 Marketplace is published by Microsoft (six applications). In the Apple App Store for iPad and BlackBerry App World, four out of the ten most popular applications are published by Apple Inc. and Research In Motion Limited, respectively.

In comparison, Windows Marketplace for Mobile, Microsoft’s store for Windows Mobile 6.x devices, has gathered only 1,350 applications to date since the store launched over a year ago on October 6, 2009. The number of applications is displayed in the chart above by category. We have grouped categories that feature similar content in order to provide a clear view of the differences between the two stores. Games and Tools are the categories that contain the largest proportion of applications in both stores.The proportion of applications in these categories is smaller however, in the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace than in the Windows Marketplace for Mobile. There are already notable differences in the distribution of applications between categories such as News & Weather and Business/Finance, where Windows Phone 7 has 92% and 78% more applications than Windows Mobile 6.x, respectively. Please note that the Communication category is not available in Windows Phone 7 Marketplace, and that the Photo category is not available in Windows Marketplace for Mobile.

In the other stores, the proportion of applications priced below $2.00 ranges between 57% and 71%, while only 9% of all applications cost over $5.00 in these stores.
