I am thinking of starting a mobile app store.
but i am at ground zero can anyone guide me on how i can start and proceed forward on this.
Well you would need a platform,on what would your apps run ?
Is there competition ?
Would you make the apps or do you have developers who are interested in making apps for your store ?
Just the first questions that came to mind when I read your post.
My first thought is that you will have a very difficult time selling mobile apps from unknown developers unless you have a source for the most popular apps that users are already familiar with.

apps mostly for java based handset with addition of android or iphone apps at a later stage.
competition includes getjar as the largest one.
thinking of developing something which is Zedge.net + getjar combined.
But there is a tiny market for that,for example. a good offline dict. would be a nice thing and things like that,but not the ideal business model if you ask me,too many complications,you would have to create a market for yourself
For example I use a k800i as my cell phone,just for calling and texting,but I use a iPod Touch for Email,Calendar,Notes etc.
No problem,just keep in mind to keep the apps avaliable for as many phones as possible and try not to make them internet dependent
Good luck with this,I'm sure its gonna take a lot of work
