Samsung kills of Music Hub and ebook service

Samsung on Friday confirmed that its Music Hub and ebook service will be closed effective July 1. Designed as a place to sell music, videos, games, books, and other media, the apps were pre-loaded on a number of Samsung devices. If it sounds like a replication of the Google Play Store experience you’d be correct. In fact, that’s likely a reason for today’s news. Samsung, for its part was tight-lipped, adding only that it is “striving for service differentiation and customer value enhancement.” Looking ahead, Samsung plans to keep the services alive as individual apps instead of one, single bundled storefront.

    While these apps may sometimes be waste of space. Many people forget that most countries don’t have Google’s music and movie sections in the Play Store.
