Symbian's Horizon App Store now Open for Business
Some of the handset manufacturers that use the Symbian OS already offer their own app store like Nokia's Ovi, Samsung's Application Store and PlayNow from Sony Ericsson. Offerings from the Horizon app store will be integrated into those three app stores as well as ones belonging to China Mobile (Mobile Market) and AT&T (Media Mall). The iPhone App Store has about a 100,000 app lead over Horizon, so there is a long way to go before the Symbian platform catches up, if they even can. But being the number one OS in use might help Horizon gain some ground with the iPhone.
