Nearly 150,000 Android Apps Predicited by End of 2010

There’s no doubt that the Android Market is taking off.  It seems not a week goes by without some report indicating more adoption and developer interest.  The latest one we’ve come across seems to indicate a ridiculous amount of development is right around the corner.  Mobile analytics firm Flurry is predicting that by this time next year, there could be upwards of 150,000 Android applications.

In an interview with Business Week,  Flurry Inc. CEO  Simon Khalaf said that thanks largely to marketing campaigns by Verizon and Motorola, “a lot of developers have come onto the Android platform.”  Khalaf forecasts 100,000-150,000 applications by the end of next year.  As for Apple?  Flurry is expecting at least 300,00 by then.

How do you feel about that figure?  Is that about what you’d expect or are they being a little too ambitious?
