Nokia launches Ovi Store

The world's largest cellphone maker, Nokia, has quietly and unofficially launched its application, music, video, widget and ringtone marketplace called the Ovi Store on Monday in Australia, along with Ireland and Singapore, with more markets expected to be announced in the short-term. According to a Monday report, the Ovi Store is accessible from web-enabled Nokia handsets running on Symbian S40 and S60 operating systems and needs to first be downloaded from the Extras category or home page of the Download section, once it's refreshed.

The Ovi Store application will ship preloaded on upcoming Nokia handsets, starting with the N97 smartphone. Nokia has said it is moving the Ovi Store to production servers, which is why it still hasn't officially announced it and the marketplace is available in select markets and on certain handsets. Judging from the screen captures, there is a fair amount of applications already available, both free and paid, with the most common prices set at the equivalent of about $4.70.
