N8: Guess what? The Ovi Store doesn’t suck

In the past I was pretty down on the Ovi Store because I expected much better from Nokia and I still think they have work to do on the major defining part of the Ovi Store experience that was promoted back when they were getting ready to launch. That said, as you can see in my video below the Ovi Store is much better on the N8 than even on the Nokia N97 mini. While there isn’t necessarily revolutionary changes, there are enough user interface improvements to make it better for me.

We are seeing applications for Symbian^3 appear almost, if not, daily and I am adding them to my collection as I discover them. I have been purchasing apps from the Ovi Store and do feel it is now good enough for me to enjoy and use on a regular basis.

Do you buy apps from the Ovi Store?

Fully agree. I was personally positively surprised that Store does not suck in N8. The content sucks a bit though… but getting better day by day.

Well, I still can’t get past the “Unable to connect to service” error message. My phone is permanently on Wifi, Internet and Wap are set up. Everything else works, but Ovi Store.
Any ideas?
