What happens when you add up the downloads from the webOS App Catalog, web distribution feed, and beta feed? You get a number greater than 100,000,000. It’s taken a little over a year and a half to get to this point, and the number still pales in comparison to the download count of from the likes of the iOS App Store and Android Market, but it’s still an impressive accomplishment and one worthy of applause. Or at least a polite golf clap.

So congratulations to Palm, HP, the Palm Developer Relations Team, and most importantly, the developers that put together the thousands of apps that make up this total. Without out you, there's no platform. Next stop: the moon. And by the moon, we mean San Francisco.

Update: Yeah, in case you're looking for a sense of scale, Apple is about to hit ten billion with a B downloads.

Thanks to Abe on Twitter for the heads up!
