Samsung has just launched its own application store, dedicated to Samsung Smartphone users and has started with the Windows Mobile version for the Samsung SGH-i900. The new "on-device" application store is now available in the UK, France and Italy, with more than 30 countries including Germany and Spain to follow soon. Initially, the store will be accessible to Omnia users only but Samsung plans to support other models such as Omnia II and OmniaLITE as well. The Samsung Application Store allow users to browse a variety of applications including games, references, social networking services, e-books and health-related tools (e.g pedometer, eyesight test, etc) that are easily downloaded with one click.

The Application Store is designed to automatically display the relevant application catalog available for a user's specific Samsung mobile phone model, and works over cellular networks and Wi-Fi.
Over 300 native applications meeting Samsung's content guidelines are available at launch, expected to grow to over 2,000 by the end of 2009. Gameloft, Electronic Arts, Handmark, TAITO, Paragon SW, Capcom, Com2us, Prompt, Pearson  Longman, Bokan Tech and Diotek are among the providers of applications to the Samsung Application Store.

In order to get access to Samsung's new app store, Omnia users need to download and install the mobile client from the Samsungs Application Store website.

The on-device client is available in English, French and Italian and supports credit card billing through the mobile
application store. (Phone billing will be supported soon). Users who haven't signed up as a member of the Application Store can purchase free applications and paid applications through the phone billing payment option.
Users can also browse the website for details, see featured applications and participate in online events.

According to Samsung's press release, additional languages, devices and features will be added throughout the year.

Cheers ~ Arne
