Jobs claims 300,000+ titles in App Store

updated 06:20 pm EDT, Mon October 18, 2010

Over 270,000+ iOS devices sold per day

Speaking during the company's Q4 conference call, Apple CEO Steve Jobs revealed that the App Store has cracked 300,000 in available in apps. The number was initially thought to have been hit by Saturday, but statistics later suggested that Apple had only achieved closer to 279,000 by that point. The 250,000 mark was surpassed in late August.

Jobs also used the call to claim that while roughly 200,000 Android devices are being sold per day, the iOS average has been 270,000 during the last 30 days, with peaks up to 300,000. The executive nevertheless charged that manufacturers are not reporting Android shipments, making it impossible to sell whether the iPhone or Android is currently doing better. August Gartner figures in fact concluded that Android had overtaken the market, scoring 17.2 percent worldwide versus the iPhone's 14.2 percent.

    Say Android is outselling iOS devices

    by just a bit more in terms of units. Still, all the revenue from Apple's iOS devices is going only to Apple. With all those other Android devices, the cash is being split up among multiple companies and some Android smartphones are less expensive than iPhones. So how is Android beating Apple. Sure, market share in theory will be eventually higher for Android, but Apple is certainly racking up some serious cash. I didn't hear what the cash reserve is upon earnings, but it has to be close to $49 billion or so if it's inline with the usual cash growth per quarter.
