Mobile video downloads
Samsung has launched a virtual store where punters can buy or rent
movies and TV programs and download them to their mobiles.
Samsung Movies service will offer more than 500 films from studios such
as Warner, Paramount, and Universal. It has been launched in Britain and
Germany, but Samsung intends to open it up to other European markets later.
It costs £2.49 pounds, or £4.99 to buy a movie. Newer films such as "The
Dark Knight" cost £16.99 to buy.
The outfit will only work with video-enabled Samsung phones later the
plan is to stick it on notebooks, MP3 and MP4 portable music players,
and Samsung TVs.
