Nokia vows "big news" for Ovi on Thursday

updated 10:10 am EST, Mon January 18, 2010

Ovi Store 2 likely to show this week

Nokia this morning sent invitations to a London press event for "big news" about its Ovi services. The company doesn't provide any details of the Thursday event but expects its Executive VP Anssi Vanjoki to show along with UK General Manager Mark Loughran. It expects the news to be short with just a 15 minute presentation and a Q&A session afterwards.

It's suspected that the update may revolve around a redesign of the Ovi Store that the company had mentioned in December. Ovi is already a unified store that provides apps, media and other content in a central area, but its design has been criticized for being limited compared to rivals like the iPhone's App Store. Apps themselves are also limited and don't have in-app purchasing or notification systems for when apps are closed. [via Mobile Entertainment News]
