The world’s largest mobile phone carriers are going to be joining forces to make it easier for apps to be written by software developers to run on many many phones. They want to join forces to take on companies such as Apple and Nokia have their own application stores. Google has also recently gotten into the store business. The US carriers, Verizon wireless, AT&T Inc., Sprint Nextel Corp. and T-Mobile USA are part of the group. There are also another 20 other major international carriers.

So does this mean trouble for Apple or Nokia? Probably not. The success of these application stores are common knowledge. It will be difficult to create a user experience that could match that while trying to gain a loyal following. But, I might as well try. They may end up producing more revenue for themselves.
