EXCLUSIVE: The Ovi Store team added an specially selected, full-length Hi-Def feature film to their catalogue exclusively for one customer (me!) today… It was hand-delivered from Finland by George Linardos, Nokia’s Vice President, Products, Media & Games.

The best gift from Nokia Ever: Hannah Montana. In Finnish.The best gift from Nokia Ever: Hannah Montana. In Finnish. (The Back)

It seems they were concerned about my recent dis-interest in their extensive Hannah Montana catalogue…  I’ll have a full un-boxing video posted shortly.

Kudos to George and the team for taking our recent parody of the Ovi Store’s failings in good humour.  He had, he said, lost count of the number of times it had been forwarded to him by colleagues and friends.  Politely describing it as ‘useful feedback’ his team is working hard to address the kind of problems we’d seen, but he wanted to be sure we at The Really Mobile Project had all the Hannah Montana we needed whilst work was ongoing.

[George also filled us in on recent changes and some of Nokia's strategy for the future - a proper post follows... In the meantime Mobile Entertainment has the story]

And in case you’re confused here it is one more time…

    What a useless waste of CO2 just for marketing.

    I know, I’m just taking the piss. When are we going to hear more news on the Ovi Store? MWC is a full 2 months away!

    Brilliant. Glad to hear they’re working towards fixing things. I’m still yet to download and be able to install *anything* from the Ovi store so far.

    Check Stuart Dredge’s ultra-quick write-up linked above for all the details we got today… I’ll be adding some opinion on the facts later.

    More news ‘coming’, but yes, I’d say MWC seems likely for at least a bit more news.

    Hahaha, brilliant! Kudos to the Ovi Store team for taking this with humor. They could just say “we’re listening to your feedback”, but this shows they really are.

    I really hope they can fix the store and make Ovi a service that people want to use.

    Finally gotten around to watching it – brilliant. Ironically it wasn’t UX problems with the OVI store itself I predicted way back. Great that Nokia have responded, let’s just hope they are able to take onboard the thoughts and update and modify.
