What happens if you fail to keep up with the Apple App store on your own? You get help from others of course, as that is exactly the plan, with a new App store on the way consisting of 24 different mobile companies.

As reported from WSJ, the App store has been set up by ‘The Wholesale Applications Community’ and aims to provide mobile applications for users on ALL mobile phones, in an effort to topple Apple’s grip on the App store market.
