Nokia simplifies access to data services

Reuters says Nokia has removed one of the key obstacles for take-up of its new internet offering, combining sign-ins for its overall services site Ovi.com and for its media sharing service.

Nokia bought a dozen data service companies -including an US$8.1 billion acquisition of mapping company Navteq - all of which are accessed via its Ovi.com site. Until now, each one demanded a username and password.

This cumbersome and pointless extra step has been criticised by analysts for hindering take-up. However, from other information emerging on the use of data via mobile phones, it could turn out to be less of an issue than they thought.
