Samsung TouchWiz will be available for everyone
Samsung have phones with the trendy touchscreen and their TouchWiz user interface is now pretty popular. Initially (in the F480 and the OMNIA) we didn’t like it very much, because there were few widgets and limited space for them. In our latest meetings (S5600, UltraTOUCH, OMNIA HD) we saw great improvement, thanks to the multi-page homescreens and the special widget, allowing you to download more apps.

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.
