Saturday, 7th May 2011
There is also uncertainty on Ovi Store among developers, where Nokia hosts Symbian applications. Ovi Store attracts 5 million downloads and 300,000 new users daily. �What happens to our Symbian applications on Ovi Store when Nokia fully shifts to Windows,� Murugan asked. �
Nokia�s Ovi Store would support apps for Symbian, MeeGo, Series 40 and Nokia Windows Phones,� the Nokia spokeswoman said. �Apps currently on Ovi Store would need to be rewritten using Silverlight or XNA for Windows Phone,� she added emphasising on the non-Symbian future of Ovi Store.
