MWC 09: Nokia Ovi Store better than Apple App Store?

Dieter Bohn is working hard at Mobile World Congress this week and stopped by to chat with the folks at Nokia about the upcoming Ovi Store. While the press release I wrote about had a few details, such as the "social location" functionality, Dieter was able to find out many more details about the application store. Dieter even stated that it was better than the Apple iPhone App Store, which is saying something since Dieter is still learning about Nokia and the S60 platform and has an iPhone.

MWC 09: Nokia and Adobe announce $10 million Open Source Project fund

One of the first things people generally ask about when you mention mobile web browsers is, Does it support Flash? Today, very limited support for Flash content is provided on mobile web browsers, but the new Nokia devices do have Flash Lite support. Nokia and Adobe made a joint announcement at Mobile World Congress for the $10 million Open Source Project fund that is designed to help developers create applications and services for mobile, desktop, and consumer electronics devices using the Adobe Flash Platform. This new fund is part of the Open Screen Project, which has more than 20 industry partners.

MWC 09: Nokia and Skype announce partnership, fring wins award and gives you Skype now on S60

There are currently a few applications on Nokia S60 devices that let you use Skype, such as fring, iSkoot, and Skype Lite, but there has not yet been an official full Skype client on S60 devices yet. Skype Lite works with the cellular network and Skype Out to provide you with limited service. Today Nokia and Skype announced a partnership that will bring Skype to Nokia devices, starting with the Nseries and in particular the N97. This won't happen until the 3rd quarter of 2009. fring gives you Skype access now on S60 devices.

MWC 09: Nokia announces N86 with 8 megapixel camera

It always seems to happen just after I buy a device that another successor is announced that has me rethinking my purchase. I recently purchased a North American Nokia N85, which I think is the best Nseries device I have ever used. Nokia announced the N86 with an 8 megapixel camera that has the same dual slider form factor as the N85, N95, and N96. The 8 megapixel camera includes Carl Zeiss optics, of course, and duel LED flash. 8GB of internal memory is provided for storing your photos and videos with an additional microSD card slot for even more memory capacity.

MWC 09: Nokia announces S60 application store, Ovi Store, with social location feature

Third party applications have been available for Palm, Windows Mobile, S60, and BlackBerry devices for years, but it wasn't until Apple made the iPhone App Store such a huge success that companies finally woke up to the potential market that was out there. It really is a shame that one of these companies never took the initiative to create an application store and now they are all announcing one, again following Apple's lead. Some of the best news I have seen so far from Mobile World Congress is the announcement regarding the upcoming Ovi Store by Nokia.
