Nokia opens Ovi Store for N900s

One Maemo 5 update away

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Nokia N900 users who have updated their OS can now access the mobile Ovi Store from their smartphones.

The opening of the store was announced Tuesday by the Finnish phonemaker, which recommends that you check out the live video broadcast app Qik and lyrics-searcher TuneWiki. To access the store, you'll need to perform the over-the-air update to Maemo 5 version 1.2009.44-1, then click on the Ovi Store icon.

Mark Guim of The Nokia Blog has been kind enough to provide a video of the Ovi Store in action - but if you check it out, we recommend that you turn down your audio if you're not a fan of low-rent electronica.

As you'll notice, Ovi provides you with shopping opportunities in the categories of Apps, Games, Audio & Video, and Personalisation (not, it should be noted, Personalization), plus a Recommended section - although how recommendations are determined isn't immediately clear. ®
