New Nokia smarpthones based on Symbian ^3 seem to be producing at some of their intended results. Nokia announced that its Ovi Store has reached 3 million downloads per day, a milestone it says is spurred by overall global demand and Nokia’s recent update to its Symbian line of smartphones that creates a better experience for end users.
The company also said that 400,000 new developers have joined Forum Nokia in the past 12 months, 92 of which have surpassed the million download milestone for their apps.
Nokia recently launched the Nokia N8, C7 and E7, which are based on an updated version of the company’s Symbian platform. Nokia has long been struggling to compete in the high-end smarpthone category and as a result has lost considerable market share over the past year.
In related news, the company says that the Nokia Qt Software Development Toolkit (SDK) and the Qt SDK combined have been downloaded 1.5 million times.
