[deleted post]Ovi's significance? It's absolutely nil. Never used it and 99.9% of nokia users never have and never will. Nokias are good for one thing only: calling and texting. Nothing else. The 6300 is the best phone nokia has made recently, they need to stick to no nonsense phones like that, because they suck at everything else.
Euan Andrews, 13 May 2009I think this decision is a little short sighted...
While I can understand it in these tough... moreI guess they are getting rid of it to intagrate it with the OviStore community since more people will be on OviStore since it will be on everyone phone when they update it
bur the syncing content from my phone to the ovi account was pretty cool i've never lost a number that i had on my SIM card lol
I think this decision is a little short sighted...
While I can understand it in these tough economic times, it seems apparent they are missing an opportunity...
OVI, while having existed for some time, is only just about to grow substanially as a brand, due to the impending release of the Nokia N97, and the opening of the Apps store...
I am predicting, with the opening of the App store and the release of the N97, OVI services in general will see a substanial if not meteroric increase in users/subscribers, hence justifying investment now, to improve the quality of said services and retain those users longterm.
Nokia could always invest later into such services...but by then, they may be behind the 8 ball, too far behone the competition.
Time will tell if this is a mistake or not.
hi, this can be a very tough time and decision. but its a time based. And if Nokia stops putting its eyes on development of OVI then also we can expect some good softwares.
The service had a lot of potential but was not executed to its fullest.
They shouldn't have tried to make an 'ovi community'.
I think Ovi services are AWESOME, and that's what they should stay, pure mechainal, efficiency increasing services.
Abandoning the focus on providing services which already exist will allow the company to focus on its core strengths of mobile software and hardware design and manufacture. The fact that its various E, N Series etc product divisions are slowly but surely merging in the minds of the public if not at corporate HQ suggests that the company wants to be a leader in mobile multimedia digital integration devices. Therefore diverting too much attention towards designing services which already exist would be potentially a costly distraction.
1ST. . . any way nokia came to know that this is just waste of money
