Nokia Ovi Store boom

Ovi Store still growing from strength to strength

As we reported a while ago, the Nokia Ovi Store is still growing and at a fast pace. Back in November the Ovi Store was hitting 2.5 million downloads per day and just a month later, it’s now over the 3 million mark – this means over an incredible 1 billion downloads a year at the current rate.


It’s hardly surprising to hear this news, considering much more content is being added to the Ovi Store and with the release of its newest phones such as the Nokia N8. These figures are likely to sky rocket yet again with the build up to Christmas, with all the new phones children and adults alike across the world will be receiving on the big day next month.

Some fun Ovi Store statistics:

  • Over 166 million Ovi users, in over 190 countries across the globe
  • 250,000 new users each and every day
  • 90% of store visits result in an app download
  • Each registered user downloads on average 2.6 apps
  • Approximately 92 developers have reached the 1 million download milestone for each of their apps
  • 400,000 new developer and publishers have signed up with Forum Nokia over the past year
