Warner Music Group chairman Edgar Bronfman says mobile operators need to get their music act together before Apple and Google eat their lunch.

Speaking to the Financial Times, Bronfman reiterated his long-held stance that today's mobile phones are too difficult to use. He pointed to Apple's iPhone, and the newly announced Android mobile OS software and Open Handset Alliance led by Google, as the wave of the future.

"With Apple's iPhone innovation and Google coming in, if the mobile phone industry doesn't respond with highly competitive offerings, they're going to watch their share of the opportunity diminish," said Bronfman.
