When you think about apps on phones, you probably think first about Apple's App Store and Google's Android Market. But there's a few other major players. HP has the webOS marketplace, and RIM has the BlackBerry App World. And while RIM's taking a beating lately, that doesn't mean that they're lacking for users. The company just announced that App World 3.0 beta is "coming soon," and there's also some celebrating to do: they just passed their one billionth download!

It's available in over 100 countries, with an average of 3 million downloads per day. Of course, having the PlayBook out definitely helps as well. So, have you contributed to the count? Mind you, this isn't nearly as many apps as Android or Apple has out, but it definitely took even those a good while to hit this mark.
