While Symbian is generally best associated with Nokia, history proves that Samsung has had a pretty fruitful relationship with the operating system as well. In fact, it’s looking to beat Nokia at its own game by launching an S60 App Store first. Samsung Mobile Applications, which already has a website up, is expected to initially focus on providing apps to Symbian S60 users in the UK, and just in case you were curious, “there is no initial outlay or ongoing costs associated with marketing or hosting your product on the storefront and freeware is distributed at no cost to the developer.” Reportedly, the storefront will be officially unveiled at Mobile World Congress with 1,100 applications ready at launch (for UK residents), and while details are vague, we’re told the program will also support Windows Mobile and possibly other systems later in 2009.
