Samsung has used this year's Consumer Electronics Show to promote its brand new app store, called simply Samsung Apps and offering downloadable content for its mobile phones and networked television range.
Samsung already has an Internet TV service which caters to its televisions with online capabilities, but this new store will allow owners of both Samsung mobiles and TVs to choose from a much wider selection of applications and games than ever before.
When the digital doors are opened to the public in the first quarter of the year, all of the apps will be free, although Samsung said that it plans to begin a payment service for premium apps during the summer months.
Samsung is currently encouraging developers to start signing up to create apps for the service, although it would not say whether any big names had already made a commitment.
At the moment only mobile customers can start downloading apps, however support for TVs must be following shortly in order to generate more interest in the launch.
