Nokia Ovi Store rolling out around the world

I have to say I am a bit jealous of Australian Nokia owners at the moment after reading on All About Symbian that the Ovi Store launched there this weekend. You can check out several screenshots of the Ovi Store running on a Nokia E75 and I can’t wait to get this on my devices. As I understand it you download the Ovi Store through the Download utility and then the Download utility is replaced by Ovi Store. I wonder what us Nokia E71x owners without a Download utility will be able to do to get the Ovi Store on our devices.Nokia Ovi Store rolling out around the world

A couple things I am very curious about on the Ovi Store are the following:

  • How does the Ovi Store work for people with multiple Nokia devices? By this I mean can I load a purchased application on multiple devices with a single purchase? Will my account details (purchase history) appear across multiple devices?
  • What happens when you attempt to download an application you already have loaded on your device?

As Nokia rolls out the Ovi Store onto production servers and it appears around the world, I will start using my 5800 and other devices to check to see if it appears here in the US. If you see it on your device, feel free to let us know where you are and what device you are running.

store.ovi.mobi and store.ovi.com asks for a password now. That will possibly disappear when they open for business.

I’ve posted my first impressions of the Ovi Store. I will reserve my final judgement as to whether this is an iPhone store killer to the final release but it sure looks god.

If you have installed an app you already have it will warn you that you are installing an older or equivalent version. Nothing to worry about there.

Was able to load to my device this morning. I have a 5800 XM european version. Tried to log in with my Nokia Account. It dropped out of the program. When I went back to the apps section and reloaded I got a sockets error. This is also noted in the lower part of the All About Symbian blog (http://www.allaboutsymbian.com/news/item/9535TheNokiaOviStorenowopen_i.php)
I live in Georgia, USA.

Got it working after a couple of tries. Looks nice. on the 5800, and even though my phone is a Euro RM number and imei it sets the price in USD I am sure it is based on ip address.
