Microsoft: 100 000 Windows 8 apps within 90 days of launch

In an interview, Microsoft US Sales and Marketing vice-president Keith Lorizio revealed that the software giant is targeting 100,000 apps to be available for Windows 8 within the first 90 days of its launch. At present, only 3,000 "Modern apps" are available in the Windows Store.
But does Microsoft have a ton of Windows 8 apps waiting in the wings? That seems to be the claim from Keith Lorizio, the vice-president of US Sales and Marketing at Microsoft. In a video interview with Beet.tv, conduced during last week's Advertising Week event in New York City, Lorizio says that Microsoft is targeting for Windows 8 to have 100,000 apps available within the first 90 days of its launch.

That's a rather ambitious number. After all, it took Windows Phone nearly two years to reach the 100,000 app mark. On the other hand, Windows 8 will be installed in a much larger number of devices (desktops, notebooks, hybrids) than Windows Phone so perhaps Lorizio's prediction may not be completely crazy.
