BlackBerry 10 is reporting some promising news about its developer community – it’s alive and thriving.

Developers continue to support BlackBerry 10, the smartphone maker says, delivering more than 30,000 new applications to the platform over the past seven weeks.

On Thursday, BlackBerry announced that BlackBerry 10 customers now have access to more than 100,000 applications for the BlackBerry Z10 smartphone on the BlackBerry World storefront.

Beginning today, the list of available apps grows even longer. Amazon Kindle, OpenTable and The Wall Street Journal are now available to BlackBerry 10 customers. On deck for the next few weeks are CNN, The Daily Show Headlines, eBay, eMusic, Maxim, MLB at Bat, MTV News, Pageonce, PGA, Rdio, Skype, Soundhound and Viber.

“The response to the BlackBerry 10 platform and applications has been outstanding. Customers are thrilled with the applications already available, and the catalog just keeps growing, now with more than 100,000 apps,” said Martyn Mallick, Vice President of Global Alliances at BlackBerry.
