For all you Nokia toting football fanatics gearing up for the 2010 FIFA World Cup which is being held in South Africa, according to a report by intomobile, Nokia is pairing with soft drink giant Pepsi with a view to launching a Nokia Ovi Store football channel in time for the World Cup.
The Ovi Store football channel will apparently deliver information from the “world’s most recognised football content providers”, applications and entertainment, and the Pepsi charity football anthem “Oh Africa” will be downloadable from the Ovi Store.
The Ovi Store football channel will offer downloads such as News applications like ESPN Soccernet, Goal.com and Livemobile Football; Great Goals, free video and audio clips; Games such as Speedhero Multisport, Real Football Manager 2010, and Real Football 2010; Social Networking applications such as Buddycloud and Nimbuzz; while Touchnote enables the user to snap pictures and turn them into physical postcards.
Furthermore Nokia is launching their Nokia Skill Dribble contest whereby skill dribblers show off their skills to keep control of the ball and avoid tackles as long as they can to build up points and the highest scores of each week will win a Nokia N97 Mini along with a shirt which has been signed by one of the world’s top footballers.
