A million downloads, impressive. Even more so when you consider that fewer than 30 applications were available for download from the App Catalog
to a single device (the Pre) available only on the number 3 carrier (Sprint) in the US. Unfortunately, Palm's not offering any official numbers -- the figure comes via industry analysts who suggest 150,000 Pre devices shipped since the June 6th retail introduction for an average of about seven apps downloaded per phone. Imagine the numbers had Palm's SDK been ready prior to launch.
