    Don't believe what Nokia tells you about download figures as they fiddle the numbers themselves. Nokia are not interested in Quality, only in pretending to develop "cool and trendy" apps that no one can use properly or want. Failure of ovi.com and web/mobile devices is in evident still today in ALL blogs and forums and the N8 is a such a joke that some review sites claim they can't even take some pictures of the device as it is too ugly. I don't think the new CEO has the balls to sack these "trendy developers" in Berlin who are burning Nokia's money so I guess the poor quality will continue. On the issue of figures an architect at Nokia Berlin has only just recently produced a system to analyse the web logs and that is over a year late! how poor is that.
