iPhone App Store Billion App Countdown

Apple will soon reach the milestone of 1 billion iPhone applications downloaded. Apple has a countdown page and a promotion. What I find especially amazing is the conclusion that the average user has downloaded about 30 applications! (Given that Apple has sold about 30 million iPhones and iPod touches)

I've got 91 Apps in my iTunes so I've downloaded about 3 times as many as the average user (I may have deleted a few), but I'm an iPhone developer and I download apps for competitive analysis or just to see what's going on in the market.

30 applications per user is simply amazing and bodes well for the future of Apple, their competitors, and for mobile developers.
