Nokia has announced that it will be shutting down web access to the Ovi Contacts website as of January 24, 2011.
Contacts on Nokia phones will not be affected, and users can continue syncing and backing up data normally, but just not access the data via a web browser any more.
Nokia said that the decision to shut-down the website access was a business decision to help it focus on core service offerings with the new business unit Location & Commerce, established in July 2011.
