I am wondering about these app stores that are springing up all over the place following the success of Apples. I have seen them come from Sony and nokia and I suppose many more companies. What I don’t understand is why these companies are wasting money on developing these products when they will obviously be moving onto the android platform and then they will have to redevelop them. It just seems a waste of time. It also makes me wonder if apps can be purchased in multiple systems. Lets say I have an iPod touch and a Sony phone and I want to buy an app, should I really be required to buy it twice? It seems to me that something needs to be done to standardise these systems, and I doubt that will involve Apple moving over to Andriod!
