Now Samsung makes another smart move – gives the developers and the users chance to create their own “rich connected mobile applications”. The manufacturer is already working with Yahoo, Google and AccuWeather and their widgets will be available in the future touchscreen Samsung phones. The good news for the developers is that with special tools based on Eclipse IDE they will have easy access to code samples, FAQ’s and device emulators to create applications. Then they can sell them through Samsung Rich Connected Application storefront. For the users, Samsung plans to debut web-based tool which can be used for creating widgets from RSS feeds and (maybe) custom content. Carriers will also be able to include specific widgets for easy access to their services.
