Now what we need is mainstream companies that has a vested interest in supporting this by means of which it gets to hawk their products.

The companies involved in Eclipse and Android seem the most logical place.

The apps should be for tablets and smart phones.

Why should it not be as easy to deploy to 'The Web'
Great point! 
A cool idea indeed!

A webby application store driven by the likes of GoodRelations, FOAF Profiles, SIOC data spaces, WebID ACLs, and Payswarm is something that's missing re. poweful Linked Data showcase outside the realms of dataset publishing. Imagine if developers could produce Linked Data apps for desktops, notebooks, tables, and phones that were easy to discover, courtesy of the kind of serendipity inherent in Web-scale Linked Data meshes. Basically, you end up with something as simple as:
>Developer Activity:
>1. write app
>2. describe app -- using something as simple as a turtle document
>3. deploy app to a Web location -- e.g., dropbox or an ftp location 
>4. ACL protect access to the app via WebID
>5. use WebID watermarked X.509 certificate as the license file which
    enforces terms of use

6. announce app via a Tweet, G+, Facebook, LinkedIn post.
Could we just replace that by "announce to the Web" as well? 
using a distributed social networking platform featuring the same standard goodness and openness as the rest of the Web ;-)
