Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia has partnered with UK mobile phone operator Three to make the Ovi Store experience a lot more easier for Three Nokia users.
According to the companies, in what is being termed as ‘first time in UK’, Three customers visiting the Ovi Store will be able to pay for the paid apps they download on their monthly phone bill.
Nokia said that users won’t have to pay for third party transaction fee and other charges and simply pay for the premium apps by adding them to their Three phone bill.
“We are extremely pleased to be able to provide operators an easy and flexible way in which to both differentiate themselves in the market place as well as providing a unique and targeted offering to their consumers. We are delighted to be supporting Three with this concept through the Ovi Store,” said Conor Pierce, GM at Nokia.
Three will also be offering a list of top 40 recommended Nokia Apps from the Ovi Store on its branded Three Likes page. There seems to be a limitation though; only the lastest version of Symbian shall support this.
According to The Inquirer, the newly launched Nokia X7 will support the new feature and so will C7, E7 and N8 in the near future.
