O2 a mobile carrier in the UK are launching an App Store for mobile apps across multiple platforms (apps are available for Windows Mobile, Symbian, Java ME, Flash Mobile, BlackBerry, Linux and Unix)
I love the quote "And no, the iPhone isn't part of this - Apple, doesn't share remember!"
Personally i dont understand why someone hasn't done this earlier. Using wurfl it's a snap to be able to monitor which handset is visiting the store and present the selections appropriate to the visitors handset model.
I purchased the domains;
a little while ago with the view to setting up an application rating community but for now have held off on doing anything with them as I've already had a few offers to buy them so i might flip them before implementing a destination site, I'm just waiting to see if i get some counter offers.
Either way I think 2009 is going to be a huge money spinner for mobile application developers....I'm just not sure if Apple will still be leading at the end of 2009 in the same way it is at the end of 2008.
