Available in the UK, France and Italy since September last year, Samsung Apps (the company’s own mobile application store) has been launched in four new markets: Germany, China, Singapore and Brazil.
Compatible only with the Samsung Omnia II (I8000) and Samsung OmniaLITE (B7300, I329) at the moment, Samsung Apps allows users to discover and download a variety of both free and paid applications and games from companies like Shazam, Electronic Arts, Handmark, Gameloft, Com2us, CrazySoft Limited and Paragon SW.
Select phones launched in Germany and Singapore starting mid-February will come with a Samsung Apps client pre-installed.
A Samsung Kies software suite has been made available, providing access to applications directly from a PC – you can download it via the Samsung Apps official website.
“Beginning with the global expansion of Samsung Apps, Samsung will make its application store available to owners of its upcoming flagship models. Our goal is to help everyone to enjoy rich, personalized mobile experiences, wherever and whenever they wish. To help customers get the best out of their Omnia devices, we are carefully categorizing our applications and services, making them accessible, easily searchable, and always relevant to you,” declared Kanghyun Kwon, Vice President of Samsung’s Media Solution Center.
Samsung will demonstrate some of its mobile applications at MWC 2010 (15 – 18 February). Let’s hope it will launch some Bada phones at the same time.
