Best Buy "Exploring Concept" of an Android App Store

By the time you finish reading this post, another three or four players will have entered the Android app store market.  At least that it how it seems of late.  The most recent big name company whispered in the same sentence as Android apps – Best Buy.   The retail giant’s Chief Executive Officer, Brian Dunn, was quoted last week as considering building an application store for Android.  In response to a question about Amazon getting involved in the space, Dunn said ,”We are exploring this concept at this very early stage, but we have no concrete plans at this time. Google, though, is an obvious partner.”

What do you guys think of all of these Android Market alternatives springing up?  Does it clutter things to the point of confusion or is it good for the platform?
