Samsung to Launch Mobile Apps Store
Samsung announced plans to launch the Samsung Mobile Applications online store at the Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona later this month. The store, which will initially be for customers in the U.K., will launch with 1,100 applications for Samsung S60 and Windows Mobile devices. The online store will not have any initial or ongoing costs for developers associated with marketing or hosting software. Samsung will allow freeware to be distributed at no cost to the developer. Samsung said it plans to support other platforms over time, but did not say if it would expand the availability of the storefront to other markets.
