The Samsung App Store for unlocked cell phone such as Samsung Captivate i897, Samsung Nexus S unlocked, etc.. has a bit of a head start over other application stores because they operate on both cell phones and on televisions, but that is not stopping the company from issuing a statement that their app store has officially passed the one hundred million download mark. The mark is a huge one that is exclusive to only a few other app stores in the industry, and even though Samsung crosses through both the mobile and television industry with their app downloads, that does not make the number any less impressive.
It has been ten months since the service first launched. It looks as though Europe is the primary downloading location for users of the Samsung app store. France had the largest number of downloads of any country, with Germany and Spain following closely behind. The three countries together combined to account for more than forty percent of the overall number of downloads from the Samsung App Store since it was first launched more than ten months ago.
The app store is currently home to more than 13,000 applications. This number is smaller than most for unlocked BlackBerry Bold 9780, Torch 9800, etc.. other app stores, but is only seven thousand apps behind the BlackBerry App World store which recently hit the 20,000 mark. The Samsung App Store has quietly grown over the course of the last few months and has become one of the more popular app providers on the Internet. It will be interesting to see if they are able to keep up their huge rate of growth moving forward, or if they will slow down as so many other app stores have. The numbers that they announced are quite large for only having been around for the last ten months, but are still not touching the numbers of some of the more popular app stores, such as the Apple iTunes app store and the Android App Marketplace.
