Ovi Store – 5 Months Down the Lane


Its been 5 months since Nokia’s Ovi Store has launched. Bill Perry, the Sr. Services Marketing Manager for Forum Nokia, California has written about the statistics of Ovi Store so far.

Quoting from his blog mobileperry, the following stats of Ovi Store are from 26 May 2009 through the 31st October 2009:

  • Available on over 100 different Nokia devices (60+ Symbian S60 devices)
  • Active users from over 180 countries
  • Developers from 65 countries are distributing content
  • 8 countries today have local content, local language support and mobile billing: UK, Spain, France, Germany, Singapore, Australia, Italy, Russia. By the end of Q1 2010 there will be more than 20 countries.
  • Top 10 Ovi Store Markets by performance in alphabetic order: Egypt, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Spain, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Russia & UK
  • In almost all of the top 10 Ovi Store countries, 5800 XpressMusic and N97 are the #1 and  #2 devices for Ovi Store activity and consumer engagement
  • Re-Download now available and search is much improved.
  • Ovi Store will ship embedded on most new compatible Nokia devices including Symbian S60 and Series 40 from Q4 2009
  • On average, each registered user has downloaded at least 8 items from Ovi Store

Hmmm Looks like the Ovi Store is doing pretty well. Isnt it?

Also it seems like the rise in the sales of touchscreen phones like Nokia 5800 and Nokia N97 are showing on the Ovi Store as well. What do you think?
