Samsung is hoping to duplicate the the success of Apple's iPod and iTunes by launching its own online music store. The company says they are now in talks with partners to debut a service program just like Apple's iTunes. Their number one priority is to help customers use their products with ease.
Samsung, a latecomer in the MP3 digital audio player business, has tried to catch up with Apple, which commands in the portable audio jukebox market.

The Seoul-based firm especially has vended flash memory-based items with a brand of Yepp and sold about 1.7 million MP3 players last year, not a satisfactory figure for the global electronics giant.
More info at The Korea Times. It's not sure whether Samsung will only target the Asian market with its music service.
