Ovi Store update getting pushed out

| May 26, 2011 | 70 Replies

The Ovi Store (ver. 2.8) update, which is expected to bring improved performance, app updates (finally) and a few other niceties and improvements is supposedly finding it’s way out to users as we speak. Β With this update coming out now and hints of PR 2.0 being imminent, it’s a good time to be a Symbian fan.


If you’re running a Symbian^3 device be sure to check your app updates program soon. On another note, aren’t you glad Symbian is getting “support” until 2016??

    “Andre” you seem to know what kind of “support” Symbian is getting until 2016. Don’t tease us like that.

  • Anil

    where is the update meant to appear??
    in menu>applications>SW update
    if you go onto the ovi store itself?

      Asked the same… the last time Ovi Store got updated it came via the Store App. But this time people are speaking about the software updater (former comments)… confusing.

    I got a update on my X6, don’t know what it did though.

  • Cod3rror

    Too bad there is nothing worth buying there.

    • xyz

      Too bad your comments are not worth reading.

    Other ideas by Nokia Marketing were “Nokia Smartphones – think difficult” and “Nokia Smartphones – think delayed” πŸ˜‰

      @adc283 It’s being rolled out gradually but I’m afraid we can’t provide further details on devices and locations. Will keep you updated ^r

      So they say.., but i still cant find anyone who has received it yet..

    Today I opened up OVI store on my Nokia N8, and it showed me the update screen. I’ve just downloaded and installed version 2.08.042.

    Just updated a couple of applications through the new update screen.

    Will provide further updates as I make use of the new store.
