MobileCrunch reports on data from mobile analytics firm Flurry showing very strong App Store download performance coming from iPod touch devices, suggesting a strong holiday season for Apple’s premier iPod line. On Christmas Day, Flurry’s data saw download volume from iPod touches increase nearly 1,000% from pre-Christmas levels, spiking well above comparable iPhone downloads, which typically lead iPod touch sales by a considerable margin.

Overall, Flurry’s data reveals 51% month-to-month growth in App Store downloads for December using forecast data for the remaining days of the month. Google’s Android Market also experienced strong month-to-month growth of 22%, but was unable to match Apple’s performance, at least in application downloads.

The apparent tremendous boost in iPod touch-based App Store downloads was not unexpected, as similar indicators of strong iPod touch sales were seen last year.
