Samsung to take app store to Brazil and China by month-end

January 18, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran


Samsung Electronics is venturing into Brazil and China with its new application store. The new move will make available to users in these two nations all its apps. Samsung has said that the new app stores in Brazil and China come as part of its global expansion plans. The new stores are to come up by the month-end.

The new app stores would allow users who own Samsung Omnia II (I8000) and OmniaLITE (B7300, I329) smartphones in these nations to download a slew of apps, including games, social networking apps and e-books by the end of this month. More could be in the anvil as Samsung had announced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas  that its application store would soon start offering apps for certain flat panel TV models by July. The mobile phone maker has already kicked off stores that target users in the U.K., France, Italy, Germany and Singapore. As per plans, the company looks at ensuring that users in at least 50 countries will be able to access its app store by the end of this year.

It is a known fact that Apple already has set up a wide network of app stores, and that users in 77 countries can now download software from the App Store.
