Nokia opens Ovi app store to 50 million users

Nokia said it opened its online software and content store, Ovi Store, globally to some 50 million phone users today, Reuters reports.

The Finnish handset maker began rolling out the store on Monday, opening it to users of a few of its phone models in Australia and Singapore.

Nokia said clients in eight countries can pay for purchases through their phone bills, and AT&T was planning to make the store available to its clients in the US later in 2009.
