Steamezzo has announced that Samsung has selected its software products and professional services to develop, deploy and run its Rich Internet mobile portal.

The French company’s Mobile Open Development Platform is already certified on hundreds of handsets and compatible with all mobile operating system.

By using the paltform, Samsung hopes to encourage the usage of its mobile services as well as to accelerate their deployments on the largest range of devices.

The Rich Internet application, natively embedded on multiple Samsung devices, allows subscribers to access to a large variety of free and premium services such as news, ringtones, music, video-on-demand, and games.

Special announcements or latest news from Samsung are also directly accessible from this portal. The service offering is continuously extended and provisioned over the air, without requiring any software upgrade on the devices.

Dr Anthony Park, director business development at Samsung Telecommunication Europe, said the technology opens up attractive business models that end users will really get excited about.

"Mobile users want everything perfectly adjusted to the mobile device here and now," he said.

"And that is precisely what Rich Internet applications are all about."

The first releases of the Rich Internet Portal were in Russia, Germany and United Kingdom. Several other countries are planned to be rolled-out in the coming months.
