China Mobile planning App Store According to an IDG News Service report, the world's largest mobile phone carrier, China Mobile, is planning to start its own application store, dubbed the Mobile Market.
The store will be open to professional developers and independent developers, although it is unsure what operating systems will be supported by the store or the applications.

The report says the application store may have been another roadblock in negotiations between Apple and China Mobile over bringing the iPhone to China. Apple wants to be the sole distributor for applications on the iPhone, but clearly China Mobile has different plans.

Apple is now allegedly negotiating with China Unicom instead.
