    Sounds good to me. Will the legacy-compatible apps be restricted to Nokias, or can we use them on any Symbian handsets?

    I've been waiting for this store for ages, i still think they have totally cocked up the launch though, they didn't say what date it will be released, they just said 'May' which is pretty crap if you think about it

    They want to launch the store to rival the different app stores around now right? then they should have launched it something like May 1st rather than leaving everyone guessing, they also have done **** all advertising behind it etc, You'd think that any half way intelligent company with so many phones out there would be running advertisements in the papers, on the TV and have them pop up all over the web informing those people who would otherwise never know about it that 'Ovi store coming xx/05/09' etc

    Are they honestly intent on setting it to fail with NO advertising behind the launch to hype it up etc? Do they just expect everyone to learn once its up and running, then get all upset when they realise they are not meeting their predicted numbers because nobody knows about it?

    Epic Marketing Fail.....

    @Gremlin

    Remember that almost unknow online store? Steam? Almost no advertising on its launch.. Some here and there.

    Perhaps it's kinda "open beta" thing...

    Yea, difference is Steam didnt have a major competitor that offered the same sort of thing on the scale that say the Apple App Store is around etc, and lets not forget Nokia's money woes or whatever, they need something to get people buying their phones over iPhone's, i'm one of those people that only entertain the idea of an iphone simply for the apps, so Nokia has a serious chance here to get an injection of much needed cash if it does it right

    I concur.




    Going from a Symbian N series to a Google G1 really shows how outdated, slow and all together outclassed Nokia is.

    There's already an 'app store' for S60, but it's called 'Download!' and it's crap.

    Nokia need to get their act together. I'm hoping Samsung make something really good out of S60. The OmniaHD looks incredible.
