- The Android Marketplace for free apps will go live Monday.
- Iphone applications is being installed via Installer or via Appstore for more than one year.
- We have got Nokia's OVI.
- RIM is planning to open its app store in March 2009.

By the way it is remarkable that third party developers will start making money out of this :)
