Android Market from Google finally reached the figure of 10 billion downloads and Google decided to organize an interesting promotion for its users. It is well known that the owners of Android devices do not really buy applications for various reasons and those from Google have thought to motivate them by launching a promotion that brings applications with only $0.1 to users. Gameloft, EA Games, and many other manufacturers offer hundreds of applications for just $0.1 in the next 10 days and Android owners can thank those of Google for that.

To celebrate this milestone, we partnered with some of the Android developers who contributed to this milestone to make a bunch of great Android apps available at an amazing price. Starting today for the next 10 days, we’ll have a new set of awesome apps available each day for only 10 cents each.

When Apple has celebrated 10 billion downloads from App Store gave $ 10,000 to one person in place to hold a promotion like this and in my opinion the strategy was wrong. I think that Apple has more to gain if it offers less to more than if offers more to a single person. I hope that Apple learned something here and in future will act in the same way with this promotion because it has the resources to do so and would enjoy tens of millions of iDevice owners.
