Nokia celebrates “key year” 2010
Nokia has just held its annual general meeting for shareholders, and company CEO Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo has revealed the few interesting facts about its achievements in 2010. Join us after the break for a full breakdown.
Firstly, Kallasvuo said that about 83 million people around the world are registered active users of Nokia services. He then went on to deliver statistics on some of these services:
Launched almost precisely a year ago, the Ovi Store is now averaging 1.7 million downloads per day. It also has localised versions in 18 different countries, supporting 30 different languages.
The free pedestrian and car navigation software for Nokia’s Ovi Maps service, which was launched in January, has been downloaded more than 10 million times. It’s available in over 70 countries and in 45 different languages.
This is now supported by over 70 mobile operators around the world.
This now has 8 million subscriptions, and is growing at a rate of about 1 million subscribers a month.
The Comes With Music service, which serves up millions of free song downloads for a year with the purchase of selected Nokia phones, has recently been launched in China and India.
This service, which provides agricultural information, educational services and entertainment, is now available in Indonesia and India and has attracted 1.5 million paying subscribers since its launch less than a year ago. It will soon be launched in China.
Kallasvuo also said that Nokia had sold 432 million devices around the world in 2009, which is more than its three closest competitors combined.
