iPad App Store hits 100,000 apps

According to Apple's on-device counter, the iPad App Store is now home to over 100,000 apps and games, this less than a month after Steve Jobs announced 90,000 during the WWDC 2011 keynote.

This is obviously a huge advantage, especially when Google's Android Honeycomb devices, RIM's BlackBerry Playbook, and HP's webOS TouchPad are launching with very, very few native tablet apps in their own markets.
