Samsung Electronics has launched a new ‘Premium Apps Store’ in the UK for Android devices. The service will operate in addition to the free applications available from www.samsungapps.com, enabling UK customers to buy apps via their mobile phones or by using the Samsung Kies software on a desktop or laptop PC.
No sign-up process is required. Apps are paid for by credit card, with operator billing due to be added as an option in the future.
Simon Stanford, Managing Director for Mobile at Samsung UK and Ireland, said “Anyone that signs up to Samsung Apps Store for Android today, will find a multitude of free and premium apps already available. In the spirit of providing Android users with the best possible mobile experience, it is our intention to continue to develop this premium service to ensure our customers have access to all the latest great content on Android.”
Premium apps currently available include real-time combat game Zenonia, The Sims 3 HD, Need for Speed Shift HD and 9mm.
