Nokia Ovi Store set to open with 20,000 apps

Nokia Ovi Store set to open with 20,000 apps

Nokia has just revealed that their Ovi Store will start out with a considerably larger catalog of items than their direct competitors like the iTunes App Store and the Android Market. In fact, they're starting out with about 20,000 things!

The Ovi Store is set to open in late spring, just in time for the release of the Nokia N97 smartphone in July. The "items" in the store are said to include games, general apps and even short-form videos. GPS will be used to filter content as well by city and locality.

This marks a sharp difference from the first app stores. The iTunes App Store started with only 500 apps and the Android Market started with just about 50 apps. The only problem is that Nokia is hitting some resistance from U.S. carriers in receiving full support for the Ovi Store.

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic ‘Tube’ Review

Nokia’s first touchscreen handset, the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, has finally found its way to our doorstep, and we've been playing with it for a week or so now. That's plenty of time to play around with all the available features, and a lot of our holiday shopping time went into this device.

N96 from Nokia is the N95 replacement

If you thought the N95 was hot (and it is) you should see its younger sibling, the new N96. It has a sleeker physique and shine that is hard to look away from, alright, enough with the human/phone analogy, they didn’t just update the appearance, this phone has some nice specs too.

Nokia N81 8GB available for purchase

You can now buy a Nokia N81 8GB, as long as you live in Europe. That’s right; you can add this to the long, long, inexcusably long list of wireless gadgets/technologies that we still have yet to get stateside.

God I hope Google wins that spectrum auction. In other news though, this is pretty much the launch of the N-Gage gaming platform as well.
