    I didn't do a specific count, but I would estimate it was about 250 - give or take. Nowhere near the 4,000 anticipated. A lot of the apps were junk and only applicable to people in Canada - some odd news apps etc. A few didn't even work - including one I paid for - just threw up java errors.

    I was holding out hope that a flip would be switched on launch day and all these awesome, big name apps (Skype, Google anything, first-party RIM apps we've come to love on BB, etc.) would suddenly be available! Oh well.

    But yeah, where are the 3-4000 launch apps? Are they counting things that have been submitted and there's a big backlog because of submission close the launch day?

    yes they are, they said over 3000 apps, never said they were live, alot of devs could well be holding out to try on a device (a reasonable thing to do) and others could just be waiting for the signed versions of their apps to be re-approved

    its only day 2, so i wouldnt worry much

    Someone posted yesterday that since playbook runs flash, there are over 1.5 million flash games, and apps online that you can use...and that does make sense. Flash opens up so much more that you can do, and they're free....
