Operating System[edit]

Isn't the primary operating system for Ovi be Symbian S60? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:31, 10 December 2009 (UTC)

No not really. It's also Maemo the Linux offer and the new Symbian^3 and Symbian^4 platforms. The later using Qt instead of S60. The S60 "sell by" date is 2011 when Symbian^4 and MeeGo (formally known as Meamo) will both use Qt as user-interface. --Krischik T 18:06, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Ovi small.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Ovi small.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

vs. PC Suite[edit]

What's the difference from Nokia PC Suite? I've tried to find out on the Nokia website but always ran into unusable marketing babble. They seem to offer mostly the same set of features. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 22:35, 21 February 2009

Ovi is a website/portal with the feature that many of the services can connect to Nokia phones. PC Suite is an offline client that connects to a Nokia phone, and lets you do stuff like move files on/off the phone, but doesn't offer web services. Mojei (talk) 19:24, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

centigrade is not SI (Ovi Maps)[edit]

Btw. the SI unit for temperature is K not °C. So you can as well continue using °F, which is as much or as little SI as is °C, but maybe more useful for everday usage.

(concerning the section: It has some annoying limitations, for instance, it is only possible to have the temperature in centigrade if distances are measured in kilometres (in some markets a mixture of SI and Imperial units are required) and notifications (such as those warning of roaming) pop up and block the maps and halt navigation requiring a user reset.

"It has some significance in that Nokia is moving deeper into the world of Internet services, where head-on competition with Microsoft, Google and Apple is inevitable." Doesn't it need to be updated with regard to Microsoft? --Mortense (talk) 11:18, 12 June 2011 (UTC)

No updates in Ovi (Nokia app store)?[edit]

See: [1]. I think I am in the right place. Then this page and List of mobile software distribution platforms should be updated?].

Officially it's already discontinued, so it should be noted as such. --Lumia930uploader (talk) 11:40, 5 April 2015 (UTC)
