Opera Mobile App Store is the new kid on the block.
Recently released in early March 2011, the Opera Mobile App Store shows potential.
First, it has a stellar Opera “esque” black and red theme. The touch interface reminds me a lot of how the touch Facebook web app is designed.
Second, the new Opera Mobile App Store features both paid and free apps with competitive prices. All app stores do not sell the same app for the same price, which makes the alternative app store an exciting addition to the marketplace in order to foster more competition. For example, QuickOffice Connect mobile office suite was four dollars cheaper than on the Android Marketplace on March 21st, 2011 selling for only $5.99 instead of the usual $9.99.
Thirdly, the Opera Mobile App Store offers an account based sales experience where you can register multiple devices and keep track of your downloads. The whole app catalog and delivery system is administered by PocketGear.com
