Alternative App Store?

So what does this mean - an alliance of phone companies putting together a new app directory?

Twelve of the world's biggest phone networks — including AT&T, Orange and Telefonica — will announce their rival technology tomorrow to Apple's App Store. The combined audience for the app platform will be 2 billion customers. Phone manufacturers Samsung, LG and Sony Ericsson are also part of the alliance.

If it's going to be "cross phone", does that mean that these are going to be browser based apps? Because I can't see what else would cross the multiple physical architectures involved. I'm also not sure how you would install these apps, at least on the iPhone. For an android device, an alternative store is simple, but for the iPhone? This bears watching.
