Ovi Store June Stats: Nokia’s Low-Mid End Devices Rule Downloads

Bill Perry of Nokia’s just published the latest Ovi Store stats for the month of June, what is missing is figures like total number of downloads, growth vis-a-vis last month and so on, but his post does provide an insight into the handsets people are using to download content off the Ovi Store.

Ovi Store June Stats: Nokia's Low-Mid End Devices Rule The Roost

Off the cuff when you think of apps stores, you think of (at least I do) people with high end smartphones busy downloading the latest apps but in reality as these stats show, its about the volume which comes from low-mid end devices that may or may not be smartphones. One thing that I have noted over the last few years is that the average guy on the street may have no clue what apps are, but if you look at his phone, he will have a few custom themes on it and I can image such would be items people are downloading off the Ovi Store for devices like the Nokia 2700 Classic.

Bill goes on to provide a few highlights which are reproduced below:

  • Nokia touch (Symbian 5.0) comprise a majority of the top devices
  • 5230 is one of the top devices in six of the top countries
  • N900 is one of the top devices in five of the top countries
  • The new C3-00 is one of the top devices in Indonesia

Below is all of the specific information for the top 15 countries.
