Oh damn! I am soooo satisfied with Symbian’s 6K apps! I never knew the upper limit of OVI stores. But it seems not all apps are listed on OVI (from my own personal experience) but this could change rapidly!

Oh! And BTW there are many useless apps that have a slide show of a some model babe and this will be counted as an app! This class of crapware are “AVAILABLE” for all platforms 😉
