Samsung has added premium Android apps to the Samsung Apps store and it is now available to US users. Some of titles available for purchase now are The Sims 3 HD, Need for Speed Shift HD and 9mm.
Although right now only supporting Credit Card as the payment method, Samsung plans to support carrier billing or deduction on SIM balance directly, but that will take some time.
Simon Stanford, Managing Director, Mobile, Samsung UK and Ireland said: “Anyone that signs up to Samsung Apps Store for Android today, will find a multitude of free and premium apps already available. 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.”
