Nokia has formally launched its Ovi Store to the global market which it says comprised an estimated 50 million Nokia phone owners worldwide. In addition, AT&T announced plans to make Ovi Store available to its customers in the USA later this year.
"Ovi Store is open for business and we've stocked the shelves with both local and global content for a broad range of Nokia devices," said Tero Ojanperä, Executive Vice President, Nokia Services. "Ovi Store makes shopping for content and applications easy and fun for feature phone and smartphone owners alike."
The mobile client supports operator billing in Australia, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Russia, Singapore, Spain and the UK. For other countries, credit card billing is available through the mobile application and the mobile website.
"AT&T looks forward to introducing Ovi Store for our customers later this year," said David Christopher, chief marketing officer, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets. "AT&T has a reputation for providing the most customer choice of content and applications and offering Ovi Store is in line with that strategy."
Ovi Store is an evolving media service that consolidates Nokia's existing content services into a one-stop-shop for free and paid content.
