Certain countries to get carrier billing for the Nokia Ovi Store
As we reported earlier, Nokia's Ovi Store is a place online where owners of Nokia phones can find applications, videos, games, widgets and other content to download on their Nokia handsets. It will be available on Series 40 and S60 devices. The Nokia N97, expected out in June, will be the first phone to include the store. As such, the Ovi Store still is a few months away from putting up the open sign, but already there are unofficial signs that carrier billing will be available for phones sold in certain countries. Handsets purchased in the U.S., U.K., Italy, Singapore, Ireland, Germany, Russia, Spain and Australia will be billed through the users cellular carrier while those in other countries will have to use their credit cards to make a purchase. What will happen to unlocked U.S. units? Will they suffer the same fate with the Ovi Store as they do with the Nokia Music Store where they are locked out?
