iPhone App Store: 25M Downloads In 10 Days (AAPL)

Quick nugget from Dan Frommer’s ongoing coverage of Apple’s earnings call: The company says iPhone and iTouch users have downloaded 25 million Apps from the iTunes store in the last 10 days.

Overall, that’s a useful number, because it gives you a sense of what the platform might mean for developers (and users). But it’s not a blow-you-away number. Consider: Apple reported 10 million downloads in the first weekend after the store opened. And given that there are likely some 10 million App-capable machines (3G iPhones + existing iPhones w/upgraded OS + iPod touches) on the market, we’re probably averaging 2.5 apps per device.
