Nokia is planning to open a “Nokia-branded global application store that leverages the Windows Marketplace infrastructure.”
The intention is to enable developers to “publish and distribute applications through a single developer portal to hundreds of millions of consumers that use Windows Phone, Symbian and Series 40 devices.”
The information was revealed in a joint statement from the companies, which detailed their plans to collaborate closely in the mobile market.
It was also said that the pair will collaborate on “joint developer outreach and application sourcing, to support the creation of new local and global applications, including making Windows Phone developer registration free for all Nokia developers.”
Nokia reiterated its numbers for the Ovi Store, stating that “up to 5 million downloads a day” are taking place.
It also re-stated that there are more than 40,000 apps available from the store, with around 1,000 added per week. The company also said that 158 developers from 41 countries have passed the one million download milestone for products.
