Woopra Going Public

Woopra, the real-time Web statistics tracking application, has announced that it will be moving out of the private beta phase very soon. When it moves out of beta, Woopra will be introducing a “freemium” business model, allowing most non-commercial users to use the service for free. However, those free users will be limited to 30,000 pageviews per month (not a big deal for most non-commercial sites, I’m guessing) and will only be able to store 90 days of historical data.

I have to wonder, however, how popular the commercial model will be for Woopra. With so many other groups out there offering free stat tracking for Web sites, with little to no restrictions, will the real-time information and desktop application be enough to get people to pay for Woopra? I suppose only time will tell.
