With tight competition to Apple’s App store Nokia stood up tall with their much anticipated online software and content sotre  named ” Ovi Store”. which they have rolled out on monday and is planning and had promised to open the store globally this week.

Nokia had been moving Ovi Store to production servers as a preparation for the global commercial launch. The store was opened to users of few of its phone models in Australia and Singapore on Monday.

The Apple App Store is extremely popular, with nearly one billion applications downloaded within a year of its launch, prompting operators and technology firms including Vodafone, Nokia and Microsoft to vie for a piece of the pie by mulling similar launches.

“Nokia’s Ovi store is a step in the right direction but Apple is still the king of the hill when it comes to selling applications”.

Nokia, which made its first quarterly pretax loss in January-March, is cutting annual costs at its key handset unit by more than 700 million euros ($979.7 million) to counter the dip in phone demand.

Nokia is trying to build a new business from mobile Internet services like games or maps. “Ovi Store is in some ways the last castle for Nokia – both N-Gage and ‘Comes with Music’ are industry laughing stocks.

Games and music have been spearheading Nokia’s services push, but its mobile gaming offering has had little success, and its much-hyped music offering, which bundles free music downloads with a sold phone, has also found few clients. Nokia will also sell games and music through the Ovi Store. “Ovi Store is where Nokia tries to re-group and muster its forces for a counter-offensive.

So guys i m loking forward to it.. as Nokia is always known as a money saver.. and is famous among billions of people just for that..!

hope this venture of Nokia profit them to a gud deal and we can anticipate much more from them in coming future.
