Nokia has finally launched its answer to Apple’s App Store, Ovi Store holds third-party apps for Nokia devices. One of the main issue with the Ovi Store is that it will probably not work on US carrier branded Nokia phones.
The Ovi Store comes with several categories, Applications, Audio & Video, Game and Personal. Similar to the Apple App Store, users can give star ratings and reviews for each app. Currently the store will not appeal to the US market.
