According to ChinaTechNews, Nokia will be building an ‘experience innovation centre’ aimed at providing platform for ‘Internet entrepreneurial solutions’ in Beijing. This would serve developers, entrepreneurs as well as supposedly promote building of a “world-class software ecological park”.
“Nokia’s experience innovation center plans to select 3,000 innovations, support 300 start-up companies, and promote the IPO of 30 innovative companies.”
The first phase is apparently already underway and the second phase is under construction, expected to be completed by 2013.
A 1,300% growth of WP applications to 100,000 is mentioned but more interesting is the report that he most interesting bit Nokia Store for apps has apparently increased again to 16 Million daily downloads – (Asha’s as the driving force) with accumulated downloads at 6 billion.
Nokia’s application store now has a daily download volume of 16 million and the accumulated downloads have reached six billion. I can’t seem to find info from Nokia. The last Nokia Store updates info I can find was back in July, when it reached 15M/Day
At the time there were 5 billion cumulative downloads. In less than two months, there’s a whole billion more downloads. At 16m/day, that’s a rate of about 5.84B/year.
