Nokia's Ovi Store now handles up to 5 million downloads every day
The Ovi Store currently offers over 40 000 applications to Symbian and S40 users, about eight times more than what it contained a year ago, with roughly 1000 new ones being added every week. More Symbian devices like the Nokia E6 and the Nokia X7 are already on their way and their launch will probably fuel Ovi Store's growth even further. However, feature phones running S40 should not be forgotten because according to Nokia's report, they currently account for a quarter of all software downloads.
Nokia still has a lot of catching up to do with the big boys on the software market, but they seem to be doing whatever they can to jump on the right track. After all, great hardware always needs great software in order for it to be successful in the real world, not only on the drawing board.
