Official: Nimbuzz entering Nokia’s Ovi Store

September 1st, 2009


Although OVI store has not been launched yet in India nationally, the Nokia N97 has it preinstalled and all you lucky Nokia N97 owners who already have Ovi Store preinstalled, your one-stop IM needs are history. It’s just a matter of a little more time before the launch of Ovi Store in India this September and then you can get your hands on your very own Nimbuzz in Ovi Store. The good news is Ovi store is ready for download for your beloved Nokia mobile phones [Ovi Download link].

In the last year many of us realized that Apple’s App Store model was a huge success and with 1 Billion applications downloaded in less than one year, few can contradict this.

The idea spread out really quickly and soon after, big names of the mobile industry went in the same direction. Nokia, Google, Sony (and a lot more to follow) created a unique space for their users to find the best applications for their mobile phones. From what we can tell each of the stores is a success: App Store, Android Market, Ovi Store and also where Nimbuzz was the was #1 most downloaded application in US store last month.

Soon after Nimbuzz was present in the Ovi Store, Yash Maheshwar from Oviapplications wrote a really detailed Nimbuzz review that we are really happy to share with you: Nimbuzz – The one app to IM them all!

To our Nokia N97 users in India, do let us know through your comments if you were successful in finding Nimbuzz in your Ovi Store.
