Android now has 100,000 Apps and Counting

Android now has 100,000 Apps and CountingMOBILE Android just announced via their Android Dev Twitter account, “One hundred thousand apps in Android Market.”
This news comes just after Android would be expanding to more than 20 countries.  While the iPhone has nearly 300,000 available apps, the Android platform is climbing at a much faster rate than the iPhone did.

Do you think the Android market will catch up or did Apple get too much of a head start?
