While it’s still got some distance to make up, BlackBerry has swiftly reached a milestone of sorts — its first 100,000 apps. According to the announcement, BB10 has notched up over 30,000 new games and apps over the last seven weeks, all before it’s even entered the USA. Notable new additions include the Kindle reader, available today, which Amazon confirmed back in January. There’s also apps from The Wall Street Journal and OpenTable, with the promise of eBay, CNN, Rdio, Skype, Viber and more arriving “in the coming weeks.”
