    Wallpapers and Screensaver - Is a definitive answer available?

    There seems to be confusion about whether OVI will support wallpapers and sceensavers.

    The answer in the Publishing FlashLite to Ovi thread was:

    Flash content (SWF files) that can be used for screensavers and wallpapers will not be supported in Ovi Store.

    So to answer your question, if your Flash content is a SWF file that's a screensaver or wallpaper then you won't be able to submit it. If it's an application and it's packaged then it can be submitted."

    I was doing some further searching on the topic and have found sources stating that wallpapers will be accepted, one of which is quoted below:

    "What is the Ovi Store?
    The Ovi Store, as you might expect, is an App Store. It’s also a content store, offering personalization options like ringtones, wallpapers, and themes. It’s also an audio & video store, offering downloadable content."

    My plan is simple - I would like to sell screensavers and wallpapers which would help support development of more practical apps (as well as allow me to express/explore visual creativity). I think these little things certainly have a role to play in the future of devices - allowing users to express themselves and their character. I hope I produce quality artisitc screensavers and wallpapers - not just a picture of Bob Marley with a spliff or a naked girl in front of a car.

    I am now just plain confused. I hope I can submit flash screensaver and wallpapers in some way. Can we clarify this?

    I also work as a freelance creative producer. In this respect I am looking at Nokia and Flashlite as an area of massive potential for beauty and function. Help me get involved Nokia - support wallpapers and screensavers in Ovi!
