Apple's stellar gadget iPad has hit another milestone! Amid growing rivalry between iconic iPad and other tablets, especially those powered by Google Android operating system, Apple has scored another hit by taking the number of iPad apps to over 100,000 in its App Store.

According to a report in MacStories, "In 453 days since the original iPad came out, the App Store has more than 100,000 iPad-exclusive apps available."

The report claims that there are 100,161 iPad apps in the Store, either specifically targeting the tablet, or released as universal updates to the existing iPhone apps.

The latest achievement comes barely 15 months after the iconic tablet was launched on April 3, 2010. This year in March, Apple's revered CEO Steve Jobs introduced the second-generation iPad, leaving tablet makers including Samsung, Acer, HTC, Dell, scrambling to launch their updated devices.

While unveiling the iPad 2 in March, Jobs had announced that there are more than 65,000 native iPad apps available from a range of apps in 20 categories, including games, business, news, sports, health, reference and travel.

More recently, at the Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June, Jobs had announced that iOS developers have created over 90,000 applications just for iPad since its initial launch.

Launched in 2008, Apple's App Store currently boasts of the highest number of apps compared to any other mobile app store. According to a CNN report, Google's Android Market has only 1,200 free Android tablet apps and 145 paid apps.

Similarly, RIM's BlackBerry App World has roughly 3,000 tablet apps for PlayBook.
