Nokia Ovi Store will launch with 20k items The much anticipated Nokia Ovi Store will launch with 20,000 items, says Executive VP of services Niklas Savander, a number much higher than that of most rivals when they just launched.
The store is set to launch in mid-June and will include short-form videos, games and other general apps.

Nokia will also use the GPS in many of its smartphones to filter content, with most "local tools getting more prominence when a user is in the area."

In comparison, Apple launched the App Store with 500 apps, and the Android Market recently opened with only 70 apps. Apple now has over 40,000 apps however.

Yeah, but how many of those apps will prove to be useful even if that person has GPS capabilities? Knowing them, you'll have to get the GPS app in order to use the GPS capability for those 'future' apps. (rolls eyes) - BLUEBOY
