Phoload app store aims at Java mobiles

Plastic Logic will show off a fancy, new electronic paper device today

Phoload is a new startup designed as a mobile app store for free software. It’s a two-person self-funded UK outfit which will build advertising around the site and possibly other revenue streams. So far 150+ developers have uploaded 180+ items of software, ranging from location-based apps and social networks, through to classic arcade games. Competitors include the massive Getjar and Nokia’s Mosh – and of course the iPhone app store. But Phoload will only offer apps on the Java Micro Edition platform initially – although this admittedly supports 2.1 billion phones currently.

    This looks like a well executed site, but so many app stores! I guess it is indicative of exciting times for mobile, with the proliferation of new platforms, phone capabilities, and mobile software startups. Although, except for a few smug smartphone users, I still don’t see that many people using software on their phones out and about. It’s gotta happen some time though. Maybe the long awaited breakthrough for mobile is upon us…
