Calling all S60 heads out there – Ovi is open for business. Nokia’s app store has flung its doors open this morning for downloads via the website or over the air. The will be billing taken care of by credit card or by being added on to the monthly letter from your mobile service provider. How kind.
Fifty million folk will see the Ovi app downloadable in the Downloads! section of their S60 handsets, so check now to make sure that your phone of choice supports it. You can receive the app in English, German, Italian, Russian, and Spanish, and the platform billing is supported in its entirety by operators in Australia, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Russia, Singapore, Spain and the good old Blighty. America will have to wait but AT&T is already laying down the corporate red carpet quotes with that age old launch date of “later this year”.
As promised, all the apps are available in one place with mapping and N-gage all brought under the same umbrella. There’s a bunch of freeware as well as the paid for content. Expect it to be flooded with more programs and the web awash with top tens as the minutes go by.
