Samsung selects PocketGear to power its Mobile Widget Store

We already know that Samsung (along with every other maker of phones on the planet) is set to launch its own app store for its line of smart phones and feature phones. We first learned about the new Samsung Widget Store in August. Today Samsung has unveiled more details on the Widget Store.

Samsung has announced that it has chosen PocketGear to power its Widget Store and that the widgets will be able to run across all Samsung TouchWiz mobile phones. Different types of apps will be offered including those for Facebook, Twitter, Fox Sports, and more.

Samsung says that the PocketGear Fuel Platform is an end-to-end solution allowing Samsung to source widgets and applications from partner developers and provide consumers easy access to the apps. The PocketGear platform has already delivered $2.5 billion in mobile content and applications to over 2,000 mobile and other Internet devices reports Samsung. Developers can use the Samsung Widget SDK to develop and submit their widgets to be offered to consumers.
