Default Lack of apps?!

Why is it that there is such a lack of nice apps for WinMo? I love my phone, but i always want something new. A few of my mates have iPhones and some of the apps are amazing, and some more mates have Magic's and the G1. Even Android which is new OS has loads of apps. There must be a reason?

It's so frustrating!! I thought of switching the operating system to Andriod but the Andriod they have now is not perfect for Xperia. I really do not understand whats wrong with Winmo!!

I think what they are suffering from is "crappy site" syndrome.
Whilst XDA is great, the websites selling WinMo software are uniformly awful. Mainly when you google something you get a crap load of 'link' sites the eventualy lead back to Handango etc.
The reason iphone. Android etc seem to have good apps is their app stores which make finding and getting apps incredibly easy.
We just have to hope that Windows Marketplace will be a success, and weed out the 'dross' that clogs up the winmo scene (Not to mention the overpricing)
