  5. Nokia Store update prepares for Opera Software takeoverRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday Dec 8 | Allaboutsymbian.com

    Talk about scurrying off to dig out source code and update it - the Nokia Store, for most Symbian phones, just got itself an update and you almost picture the scene at Microsoft, which has inherited Nokia's old Symbian resources and systems - Opera Software has been announced to take over the running of a software store for Symbian, but there needs to be a foolproof way for users to know about the transition . And so we see an update for the Nokia Store client for most devices today , with no apparent changes or fixes but my guess is that there's almost certainly a switch now built-in that can be activated when needed in 'early 2015' to prompt the installation of the replacement Opera Mobile Store.

    Nov 18, 2014 | Ubergizmo

    From next year onward, it does look as though the Opera Mobile Store will see off the Nokia Store, as it replaces the latter so that you will be able to get your app fix on your respective featurephones and other Symbian-powered devices from Nokia, and of course, the Nokia X, which is powered by a forked version of Android. This particular change will be implemented from the first quarter of next year onward, and those who happen to own selected Nokia handsets will be sent over to the Opera Mobile Store, where they can then apply for an account with Opera if they haven't done so already.

    Nov 18, 2014 | Allaboutsymbian.com

    The Nokia Store, as far as Symbian users are concerned, hasn't been much use for a while, with content frozen as of the start of this year, and with the very store itself starting to become available for some users in some markets. Although it's not exactly a direct replacement, and competing with ventures like AppList of course, Opera Mobile has stepped up to the plate in an initiative designed to pick up some more of the slack.
