It's been just a few months since its debut, but Mojang's Android-based Minecraft: Pocket Edition
has now sold more than 700,000 copies, said company employee Daniel Kaplan via Twitter
These numbers bode quite well for the app, especially considering it currently bears a (relatively hefty) price tag of $6.99 on the Android Market.
Minecraft: Pocket Edition first launched
in August as a timed exclusive for Sony's Xperia Play, and debuted
on additional Android devices near the end of September.
By comparison, Mojang's flagship version of Minecraft
recently reached 4 million units sold
