Every ringtone and game download site for mobile phones are no doubt totally pissed these days because of the hype surrounding app stores for mobile phones. With the iTunes App Store for the iPhone, Apple makes it appear that there has never been a download store for mobile phones in existence before.
Last week Google unveiled the App Market for Android, and now over the weekend rumors about Microsoft working on an App Store dubbed Skymarket for Windows Smartphones is in the air. The Microsoft Skymarket rumor stems from a Microsoft job ad on ComputerJobs. The Skymarket would launch along side Windows Mobile 7, which is planned for late 2009. Microsoft is as always late to the party. Skymarket could of course still be a project name as the launch is still at least a year away. The name Skymarket is not a bad choice though - it sticks quite well.
