24 mobile carriers team up to take on Apple

On the surface, it seems like an unfair fight -- 24 on one. But that's what it might take some of world's biggest mobile carriers if they hope to defeat the reigning king of mobile app distribution, Apple.

The carriers have banded together to create the 'Wholesale Applications Community'. The goal: make it possible for developers to build applications that work across handsets and carriers. The 24 carriers participating in the Wholesale Applications Community have three billion subscribers combined, and the initiative is also receiving support from the GSMA, which is made up of handset manufacturers LG Electronics, Samsung and Sony Ericsson.
