Windows Phone 8 apps at launch

Has Microsoft made any claims about how many apps it'll have for Windows Phone 8 at launch? I'm wondering if Windows Phone 8 would get for example its own Skype app -- or if it'd just use the existing Windows Phone 7 version. It's all very unclear!

You know as much as we do :p.

Given the SDK only released yesterday, I'd say very few. It's only selected developers that got it early (certainly Skype and Pandora, probably others that are important and will make use of the new features, so Kik, Whatsapp?). At a guess, probably less than 20.

Then again, the SDK did leak months ago, so who knows?
