Recently, there has been a lot of talk about how one BlackBerry World vendor, S4BB, has submitted 47,000+ apps to store and that it doesn’t bode well for BlackBerry’s view that it was about “quality, not quantity”. We decided to do some investigating with the help of the guys at Pretzil.com, to find out exactly how many apps the top 5 vendors, by number of apps, have submitted. Nobody comes close with the most number of apps submitted by a single vendor being 2,168.

Here are the top 5 vendors with their app counts according to Pretzil:
Libriance Inc: 2168 (mostly comics)
NTT Solmare: 1685 (mostly eBooks)
Tobit Software AG: 1551 (looks like an academy so might be student projects)
CrowdCompass, Inc.: 1277 (event management apps)
SOFTBANK Creative Corp.: 1092 (looks like the publishing arm of the Japanese telecom giant)
