Nokia Launches Ovi Store
Wednesday, May 27, 2009
Nokia launched its online software and content store, which is pitting head-to-head against other mobile stores such as the iPhone Apps Store, the Android Market, and the BlackBerry Apps World. Nokia rolled the store out to people in Australia, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Russia, Singapore, Spain, UAE and the United Kingdom.
The Ovi Store offers games, applications, music and other content that is compatible with Nokia handsets. Customers in the countries named above can pay for applications and content directly through their mobile network operator. Customers outside of those countries can pay for applications with their credit cards.
Nokia said that the store should be available in the U.S. via AT&T later this year.
