    Is Samsung launching a competitor to Google Play? 



    I would guess that's the idea.

    Agree. If Google can, it will screw Samsung in a heartbeat.

    Ones that like bagds of money. Since devs re barely making ends meet developing for Android, Samsung may have some leverage in this area. Userbase means nothing if you cant monetize those consumers. Since Android users have shown by and large to be averse to spending any money at all on apps, Samsung can probably throw cash around to guarantee exclusivity.

    That would be flagrant copying!  The new name is Sapple.
