Android Market already offers 25% as many apps as iPhone store (imputed math)

There are approximately 500 apps available on the Android Market currently. In consummate Google style, the Android Market is in beta, and only offers free apps. If we were to impute the number of apps that would be available if paid apps were also included, using the same ratio of free/paid on the Apple iPhone app store (about 1/5 of apps are free), then Android Market offers the equivalent of ~2,500 iPhone apps. That's already 25% of the 10,000 apps that Apple offers!
