BlackBerry is also aiming to release 70,000+ apps on the release of the BlackBerry 10 and they're getting close to that number. Adding the top apps for the iOS and Android on the release will be absolutely amazing.
If they actually reach that number, plus all the apps iOS and Android users are enjoying right now on the release, I cannot see a reason why someone would use a different platform than BB10. Plain and simple. Unless they're really in love with Siri.

Point being that we shouldn't be surprised if folks don't drop what they have and run to BB10 immediately. They'll want to sewer how things happen, and sundry items like ethical procurement of content will be major factors.

My suspicion is that app gap has not yet been filled, and is a somewhat unfair metric to measure the success of BB10 by. MS tried throwing money at it, and that didn't work (and I admit being surprised by that).

This seems pretty cool. Although, it could be 65% of the top 100%, plus 95% of the next 500 (#200 through 600).
600 * 90% = 540
(100 * 65%) + (500 * 95%) = 65 + 475 = 540
That's still awesome, but if the bulk of the "missing" apps are the more important apps, you know the detractors will point it out and specific "must" apps that are missing could be deal breakers.
Not for me though - I'm getting BB10 for sure. I'm just not sure if I'll somehow get a Z10 at launch or if I'll just need to wait for when my contract allows me to upgrade in June. I have a work BB so that complicates it (no personal phone, since it'd be redundant)
