Symbian's planned app store

The Symbian Foundation has advertised for a new manager to run their app store:

The Symbian Foundation is looking for an Application Deployment Manager with a keen passion to drive a team in the creation of a superior Mobile Application Store. This will be a senior role within both the US office and Developer Services at The Symbian Foundation.

In this role, the Application Deployment Manager will work with the entire Symbian community (including device manufacturers and operators) to define, create and drive the deployment channels for Symbian Foundation’s Application Store.
It is interesting that the Symbian Foundation — substantially funded by Nokia — is creating a new app store while Nokia already is developing their own app store — due as the Ovi Store next month. The new store will support both S40 and Symbian S60, while presumably the Symbian store would only support S60.
