Is it just me or is Apple really trying to front run Google's Nexus One announcement?

Apple said that there have been 3 billion applications downloaded on its App Store over the last 18 months.

Apple's statement is just a friendly reminder that it is the big app dog on the blog. I'm sure it is a mere coincidence that Apple's release lands just a few hours before Google talks about Nexus One---and likely the Android app market.

Couple the Apple's App Store chatter with talk about its tablet creation and there's a concerted effort to head any Google buzz off at the pass. We'll cover Google's Nexus One rollout live beginning at 1 p.m. EST.
