The Nokia Ovi Store now open in the UK

The Ovi Store roll-out just reached the UK, it seems that the store availability is proceeding around the clock, around the world. Go into Download! on your Nokia S60 device and hitting 'Refresh content', Ovi Store is now showing up on my 5800 XpressMusic in the root folder of Download! More here shortly.

Read on in the full article.

Nothing on my N96 yet but I have been playing on the web and wap site and it's all a bit slow.
Nokia must still be hard at work...

Ovi Store Is Great But....

Hi,

Had it in ireland since yesterday, installed great, no errors what so ever, however it must not be the full launch as there is barely any apps and 4 free games ???

App grade i give for ovi store, A+ in its implementation, content score so far, D+ (Could do better)

Same in Germany

Ovi store working in Germany, too. Installed from "Download!" via WiFi on my 5800. Language of UI elements is German.

But the content you see is for your handset only.
And Nokia said they are in the process of moving the store from test to mail servers so as that process goes on more should appear.

A bit too slow and confusing categories

I agree with your first thoughts, Steve.

Particularly, the loading of the content is sometimes too slow. Perhaps that will still improve... Steve, you think it could be something that can be improved by Nokia?

Also, for the apps I didn't find a way of browsing by categories. When I get home I'll check what you mentioned. In any case, that's a little too hidden for my liking.

Besides this, I like it! It has never been easier to get apps on my phone... quite the change. I also like that you can leave your "reviews" and ratings right on the app... obviously, that's the way it should be, but I wanted to highlight it as something very possitive.

I wonder how many people will download this on their phone. It surely needs to come preloaded... I'm glad it will.

@abruenin: It's PiZero's Ice, I believe.

Live in the UK...

...and on my E71. Usual Nokia quirks - first I got a corrupted message on thje downloaded file then it took several goes to recognise my OVI/Nokia account.

If I were a new user I suspect I'd have given up and reached for my iPod Touch!

BUT... once up and running it works well. It's not a seamless between pages as Apple's AppStore but it's highly useable and I downloaded the AP news app which is (a) very good and (b) free and all went very well.

In short, brace yourself for the usual Nokia software quirks (of course, those new devices that have this in ROM won't have these issues) but it looks like a pretty good service and one that will grow over time.

Though constantly updating the catalogue, I don't see OVI store in my download app (Germany).

@slitchfield: got it, thanks

The slowness could be server response due to the initial interest of new users all attempting to connect at the same time.

Having said that, the app hasn't arrived in my download folder yet despite several refresh content attempts. Could be Nokia's way of controlling traffic.
