re: RIM CEO: App Store Size Doesn't Matter
I don't know the magic number for an apps store, but there is a "table stakes" set of apps that a phone ecosystem needs. And some of those apps increasingly will be built not by traditional app developers but by companies themselves -- does my car company make a BB app, does my favorite amusement park, my coffee shop, my electronics store, my running shoe maker .... Those companies tend to want huge scale, since they're new to supporting consumer apps in the first place. Many are doing iPhone, then Android, and then taking a wait-and-see on any others.
