Samsung app store coming soon

samsung-omnia-hd-163x300 Apple has a huge one, Palm has a little one, Nokia has a decent looking one, and Microsoft, well, we’re still waiting for them to finally reveal theirs to the public. What are we talking about? It’s app stores of course. Aside from those we’ve already mentioned, you can now also add Samsung to that growing list as they’ve just announced their Application Store set to be launched on September 14th. It will initially be available in the UK and France will roll out to Germany, Spain and 30 more countries thereafter. Sadly though, only two devices will be compatible with this new service at launch time, the Samsung Omnia and Omnia HD in particular. Both the upcoming Omnia 2 and Omnia Lite will follow later on. More than 300 apps will be readily available when it goes live next this month, but they are, however, already boasting that it will top 2,000 when 2009 comes to a close. With industry giants like Gameloft, Electronic Arts, and TAITO already on-board Samsung’s latest venture, we’re pretty sure they won’t have a hard time reaching that goal of theirs.

Safe to say, the mobile app market game just got a lot more intense with Samsung now joining the fray.
