In another report by app market analyst Flurry, the spotlight is on Apple Inc.’s iPod Touch which has apparently exceeded iPhone downloads for the first time.

According to the report, software downloads from the iPod Touches (all generations) of consumers jumped more than 1,000 percent on Christmas day. The growth was based on the comparison with the average of previous Fridays in December.

“Out of the estimated 58 million iPhone and iPod Touch devices in the market at the time, Flurry estimated roughly 40% of those, or 24 million, were iPod Touch devices,” the report states.

The app downloads on iPod Touch devices eclipsed iPhone downloads by 172%.

Flurry also reports that downloads from iPod Touch 3G downloads increased by more than 900% on Christmas Day. Again, this was based on the comparison with the average of previous Fridays of this month.

But still, iPod Touch or iPhone, I’m guessing Apple is having a REALLY great Christmas, don’t you think? 😉
