Google’s app inventory for the Android mobile operating system is quickly catching up to Apple’s iOS App Store.

As of this writing, the number of apps available for Android is rapidly approaching 700,000. Just one month ago, that number was closer to 675,000 apps.

Earlier in October, when Apple formally unveiled the iPad mini, the Cupertino, California-based tech giant reiterated that its App Store now has 700,000 iOS apps.

By comparison, Microsoft said yesterday that it now has 120,000 apps for it Windows Phone OS. That’s a pretty big figure for the company but it significantly lags Android and iOS.”

With the number of Android device activations also climbing each day, it’s a safe bet that the iOS vs. Android rivalry dominating the mobile space today will continue well into the future.
