EA Want Better Mobile Distribution Systems

Hopefully with EA starting to make noises, we can expect some pressure on operators to make much needed improvements to the mobile content distribution system. As discussed here and elsewhere, there is just far too much pain in the whole process, and most companies in the mobile space have no leverage to persuade a behemoth like Vodafone or T-Mobile to change things. Change can only happen if the operators initiate it, so we end up stuck in a stagnating market.

Let's hope the bigger players get increasingly vocal - everyone will win, from consumers through all developers up to the operators, if only they could be made to see it.
