The Seller Site is a bridge for developers and content providers to connect to end-users. When developers register relevant content or applications at their anticipated price on target markets, the applications are filtered through a backend system and are then promoted on the Samsung Application Store.
All developers and content providers who want to promote and sell applications or content for the Symbian or Windows Mobile operating systems can sign up as members of the Samsung Application Seller Site for only one U.S. dollar.
The Samsung Application Seller Site will be an important part of the Samsung Application Store along with Samsung Mobile Innovator, a support program for developers, and the application store itself.
Samsung Exec: “We launched a Samsung Application Store beta service in January in the UK and have been collaborating with developers and content providers through Samsung Mobile Innovator, a developer program for Symbian, Windows Mobile, and Java from October, 2008.
With the launch of Samsung’s Application Seller Site, we can complete the total eco-system for better, easier, and more exciting mobile experiences ranging from compelling mobile phones to content and applications. We are aiming to achieve a win-win business model for end-users, mobile operators, and industry influencers, such as developers and content providers.”
Samsung plans to launch and expand an official Application Store in Europe during 3Q of 2009.
