A few months ago, news of Nokia was mostly negative. 2 lost key allies for its new version of Symbian (left Motorola and Samsung as well) and several directors (including the Symbian project manager). But lately the news has improved, as well as straightens out their finances; the company has significantly increased its offering of mobile applications.
Nokia reported that its mobile application store, Ovi Store, and manages 3 million downloads a day. In addition, its developer community adds 400,000 companies. Additionally, the Ovi Store has over 160 million users in 190 countries (10 excellent applications meet following this enalce).
These figures are not negligible, although they are easily overshadowed by holding Apple, the leading mobile downloads.
