Samsung launches premium app store

Consumer electronics giant Samsung has announced a new premium Android application store for the UK, which is set to offer a range of best-class games and apps for their handsets.

Samsung’s premium app store for Android has launched today, offering a series of purchasable items in addition to the regular free ones found on the app store that is accessible from a Galaxy device.

The app store requires no sign up process and is an easy way for Android customers to access and purchase the latest high quality apps for their mobile devices.

These applications now include Zenonia, which is a real time combat and exploration quest, The Sims 3 HD, Need for Speed Shift HD and 9mm, amongst others.

Samsung has stated that reverse billing will soon be possible, where the phone owner’s tariff can be charged for the purchase of these apps although credit card billing is only possible at the present.

Simon Stanford, Managing Director, Mobile, Samsung UK and Ireland said: “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.”
