Nokia’s Ovi Store Crosses Another Milestone : 5 Million Downloads Per Day

By April 12th, 2011 AT 4:07 PM

Nokia today announced that its Ovi Store has grown by nearly eight times over the last year and now reaches up to 5 million downloads per day, propelled by the latest Symbian devices – the Nokia N8, Nokia C6-01, Nokia C7 and Nokia E7 – which account for about 15 percent of the daily downloads.

Increased demand for apps from the approximate 200-million-strong Symbian consumer base has seen the Ovi Store catalog grow to more than 40 000 apps, with about 1 000 added per week.

This momentum has resulted in 158 developers from 41 countries now surpassing the million download milestone each for their apps.

“In about a year, Nokia’s Ovi Store has gone from approximately one million downloads per day to up to five million downloads per day today, and the velocity appears to be increasing, fueled largely by Series 40 and new Symbian devices,” said Josh Martin, senior analyst, Strategy Analytics.
