article imageApple Launches iPhone App Store With 27 Pages of Applications

By Chris V. Thangham     Jul 10, 2008 in Technology
Apple has launched its iPhone App store featuring hundreds of games, productivity applications and eBooks. iPhone users can download the applications once the iPhone 2.0 software is made available tomorrow.
In advance of Apple's launch of the new iPhone 3G tomorrow, the company has announced its new App Store is open today so iPhone buyers can see what applications they may need.
You can download the new iTunes 7.7 version here and check out the App Store.
Previous owners can download Apps to their old iPhones, but they will need the iPhone 2.0 software to make these applications run.The software will be available tomorrow along with the iPhone 3G.
TechCrunch's Michael Arrington reported there are nearly 27 pages of applications in the App Store. I was unable to see it, but I will continue to try and find it.
Here are some snapshots from the App Store.

I see many applications costing a mere $0.99. Arrington also found plenty of books listed under the applications category and most of them were available for $0.99. I would suspect eBooks at the Apple Store will rival Palm and Amazon Kindle eBooks.
With so many applications available already, it makes the Apple iPhone 3G a giant in the Smartphone industry. Others like Blackberry, Windows Mobile, and Palm have a lot of catching up to do and may even spell doom for some.
