Free Olympic Tracker from Samsung

In case you haven’t heard, there is a huge event happening this month; an event that people around the world will be watching. No, I’m not talking about Mobile World Congress; though we (Dieter and Phil) will be there. I’m referring of course to the Winter Olympics.

Several Windows Mobile heavyweights are listed as sponsors of Vancouver 2010; one of them, Samsung, has a free application available to allow you to follow the games easily from your Windows Phone. Weather Updates, Medal Tracker, Schedule, and News are just some of the features that Samsung puts at your fingertips.

Head on over to the Samsung Vancouver 2010 site (opens in new tab) for the application (you’re looking for the “Download Wow” button in the bottom right corner).

  • It only works properly displayed oin WVGA and in VGA cuts off the bottom the res is not 320 x 320 for my treo pro. But nice idea by samsung.
  • there is a QVGA version, as well as a WQVGA one.
  • WOW!Samsung makes its Wireless Olympic Works app available for more WinMo smartphones.
  • I like it. Seems like it will be handy
  • Still only WVGA, WQVGA and QVGA. I'd like to see a VGA version. Oh well.
  • I think the problem is that this is targeted at Samsung Devices; I don't believe they have any VGA phones.
