No carrier billing for U.S. Ovi Store users
Bad news for all future Ovi users in the U.S. – Nokia has announced that U.S. customers of its Ovi Store, expected to launch this May, will not be able to pay for purchased content through their carrier bills, informs Reuters. This is odd, since as far as we knew US used to be on the list of, all in all, nine countries across the world where this was to have been made possible. Unfortunately, it now seems that the U.S. has been left out and carrier billing will be available in as many as eight countries: Australia, Italy, Germany, Russia, Spain, Singapore, Ireland and Britain. This will have a negative impact on Nokia, given the company is bound to lose a number of prospective U.S. customers.
