We’ve all heard of it… waited for it.. and now it’s finally live! Ovi Store… is the one stop shop for Nokia users to download apps, ringtones, videos, games and many other interesting contents for the mobile.

OVI Store is for all Nokia users.. be it an S60 or S40 device

You can visit the store using your PC at but it is recommended if you view it using your phone browser as you can directly download apps without the need to send the SMS link to your phone(if you are on PC).

Be sure to get yourself an OVI username (if you still havent got one).. cos you need it to sign in to Ovi Store to download contents to your own phone or send to your friends.

Here are some screenshots I took when I was surfing Ovi Store on my 5800. Upon arriving on the site, you will be prompted to download and install the Ovi Store app for better and smarter experience. So I did. As you can see on the 2nd screenshot, I was signing in to my OVI account. You can do that by scrolling down to the bottom of the page in the app.

This is how the app looks like on the 5800. Touchscreen experience is always the best.. ahahhaah (cant wait for the BETTER experience on the N97.. lol).. ya so you can surf around to look for the contents that you like. The green tabs on top categorises the apps to games, apps, recommended, my stuff, personalisation and audio & video. Once you click on an app that you are interested in, it will switch to the screenshot on the left.. more info about the content and buttons to download and send to friend. If it’s a paid app then you will see the option to buy.

Do check out the all new OVI store now!
