Android users in the UK now have another option for accessing apps for their smartphones and tablets, as Samsung has announced the launch of a new Premium Samsung Apps Store for Android.

The UK is one of the first countries to gain access to premium Android apps through Samsung, and there are many mobile apps and games that can be purchased on top of the current free Samsung apps download option.

The Samsung Apps Store will offer network billing in the future, meaning that any apps you purchase will be billed along with your standard network usage each month, or deducted from a pay-as-you-go SIM card balance. But for now you’ll have to pay by credit card, as is the situation on the Android Market.

In the spirit of providing Android users with the best possible mobile experience, it is our intention to continue to develop this premium service to ensure our customers have access to all the latest great content on Android.”
