Nokia reports 5 million daily Ovi Store downloads
Nokia has said its Ovi Store has grown by nearly eight times over the last year and now serves up to five million downloads per day.
The company says that the large growth has been driven by the latest Symbian devices including the Nokia N8, Nokia C6-01, Nokia C7 and Nokia E7. Some of the most popular apps on the New Zealand Ovi Store include Facebook Chat, AngryBirds, Fruit Ninja, eBuddy, Skype and Snaptu.
Tero Ojanpera, Nokia’s Executive Vice President of Services and Developer Experience, said, "This momentum continues to demonstrate consumers’ appetite for Nokia’s global and locally relevant apps, and will help us plan the future apps store experience for improved and new Symbian devices, as well as Nokia smartphones based on the planned collaborative opportunities with Microsoft.”
