Nokia started work on WidSets which would offer the very latest and wide variety of applications, games, feeds etc. They would be compatible with various pones from various manufacturers.
Now there’s news that the WidSets site by Nokia would be changed into the OVI Store which Nokia describes as the one-stop global store for mobile games, apps, videos, social content etc. Nokia announced that from the 1st of June 2009, the WidSets account will no longer be available.
Thus users will have to grab the WidSets at the OVI store from 1st June onwards.
Here’s what Nokia has to say on the OVI store:
