OVI - The door to Nokia's internet services

“Today, capturing great photos, videos and audio is easy. But until now, organizing it all has been tedious. And sharing it with the people who matter to you can be a major hassle. Now, Share on Ovi makes organizing and sharing your media as easy as capturing it with an easy-to-use site where you can be comfortable inviting your friends and family”.

That was the so called "USP" of Nokia’s “
Ovi” (twango), a new website in the already overcrowded social networking domain. “Ovi” allows people to share photos and videos and is built on technology acquired with the U.S. firm Twango. So let look at what “Ovi” has in store for us. Here are the reasons mentioned on the website for becoming a member:
  • Organize and manage all of your media in one place—we support more than 100 types of files.
  • Share your media your way: privately with one person or with a group, or publicly with the whole world—you are always in control.
  • Bring every participant's media together to enrich the experience of your team, clubs or other groups.
  • Republish your media anywhere on the Web—with access to fun display features such as slideshows and tickers.
  • Find cool new people and media with easy browsing and searching on Share on Ovi.
  • Capture the moment wherever you are with one-step sharing from your PC or camera phone.
  • Invite people to view your media without forcing them to sign up.
  • Get unlimited media storage, 250 mb of upload bandwidth per month, and a 100 mb maximum file size with your free account.
Nokia, the world's largest cellphone maker, has also started to roll-out its online gaming service N-Gage as it expands into mobile Internet services. It has delayed the gaming service twice last year due to delays in software testing and starts to roll out to owners of its N81 multimedia phones around the world.

Nokia is the first handset maker to move strongly into the content space with services like music or filing sharing site Mosh, where millions have downloaded audio or video files, programmes or documents.
