Samsung has launched its own App Store for Samsung mobile phones. The site offers up only applications that are compatible with Samsung phones.
The site is actually powered by PocketGear. PocketGear provides a platform to distribute mobile smartphone apps from 30,000 developers. The company runs for PocketGear.com, SymbianGear.com, PalmGear.com, AndroidGear.com, RIMGear.com, Smartphone.net, and Mobile2Day.com and for more than 15 partners including Palm, Sony Ericsson, T-Online, and AOL. And now PocketGear also handles the App Store for Samsung. Via Hallutech.
The App Store hype got triggered by Apple with their dramatically successful store for the iPhone. App stores have been around before, but Apple made them as easy to use as buying a song on iTunes.
