Android App Store Passing Apple’s In Five Months? Hardly.

According to a new report from analytics outfit Distimo, if Google’s Android Market maintains its current rate of growth it will surpass Apple’s App Store to become the largest app store in number of applications in just five months.

You can see the blue growth line for Android set to pass the green Apple App Store line in the chart below:

Oddly, however, Distimo analysts chose to break out iPad applications into their own distinct category.

If you combine the iPhone and iPad numbers into a single iOS platform number, as I did, then Apple ends up being the top line in the chart, and that line seems to tell just a slightly different story.

Guess it was a slow news day.
