About 10 months ago the people of Samsung decided to open its own App Store dedicated to mobile firm operating through Bada operating system . And now the Koreans are celebrating to have reached the 100 million downloads . Truly, it is an excellent number, and it appears that its success will continue for a while.
The closest remarkable thing is that Samsung Apps started in a very humble, and we must also take into account that Bada platform is not the world’s most popular software
. Today users have more than 13 000 applications available for download and make your smartphone “smarter”
As explained by the directors of the company’s native South Korea, European users are the most used mobile Bada. In total, the Old Continent has more than 40% of the teams working through the operating system
. Moreover, Spain, France and Germany are the countries that pose the greatest number of users.
Samsung are optimistic about the performance show its App Store in 2011. Currently mobile applications Bada downloaded from 120 countries , and aim to increase that number by creating new models to work with that operating system.
Finally should be mentioned that Samsung celebrates 100 million downloads offering lower prices and special application packages for a limited time . From 25 to March 30 promotions will be available so that users are able to maximize this online store .
As expected, Apple so far failed to reach the target of 10,000 million downloads in its application store. In this way Apple shows who’s boss regarding application stores, exceeding by several million to its closest competitors.
To celebrate this event, the apple company offered a prize for the lucky buyer of the 10,000 million application. This award was won by a woman in London, which gave him an iTunes card $ 10,000 to spend. Something very strange is that the woman to receive the first call to inform him that he had won, he thought it was a joke and hung up. Luckily, the woman called again and realized it was real. id=”more-13782″>
still no app store that can to overshadow the App Store , and not do while Google may not meet all Android devices and allows them to download applications, or while Microsoft will not start speed up production of its operating system. Hopefully with the development of MeeGo the Nokia Ovi race again.
For now, Apple will say tomorrow name of the winner of the competition , so as to end the contest.
The closest likely, the next time we talk of such records is precisely because Apple reached 20,000 million downloads, while the rest of the application stores have not yet reached 10,000 million downloads.
