In case you haven't heard, Nokia's launched its answer to Apple's App Store, the Ovi Store. To help kick things off, Nokia and its Ovi Store are giving away an unlocked N97 Mini to one lucky Crave reader (sorry, service isn't included).
Nokia describes the Ovi Store as a one-stop-shop for free and paid content, with support for a range of device types--from smartphones to feature phones. "Globally, Nokia device owners, in more than 180 countries, across more than 100 Nokia device models in 30 languages have access to the Ovi Store," according to Nokia. "Many of the content industry's biggest names along with independent application developers are distributing their media, applications and games through the Ovi Store by Nokia."
That's all good news to Nokia owners and we look forward to taking a spin in the new store ourselves and give you the complete lowdown.
Normally, an unlocked N97 Mini would cost you about $479, but you have the chance to get it gratis. Read CNET's full review of the Nokia N97 Mini.
