Samsung mobile phone users could soon be able to enjoy using a number of apps on their phone, including the potential for interactivity with their TV sets.
The electronics company made the announcement at the 2010 International Consumer Electronics Show and consumers may be tempted to trade in their old mobile to purchase a new handset.
Samsung used poker as an example of how downloadable apps could be used across technologies including mobile phones, televisions, computers and Blu-Ray players.
Gaming fans could soon be able to enjoy playing a downloaded game virtually through their television sets, it has been suggested.
The apps could allow interaction between a consumer's mobile phone and their television. Users would be able to play games on their TV and control them with their handset.
The Korean company announced that some apps will be included with its sets and some will become available for download through use of the integrated Wi-Fi free of charge from this spring.
