Any updates with this???
Bumping this thread.
Thanks Ron for the information but I'm not sure what to make of it.
Having to wait a couple of more weeks for our sales reports seems to be totally unacceptable. I get this feeling that Nokia isn't being serious about operating a store and this doesn't help matters much at all. The entire point of selling content is to know how much money your making if your media campaigns are working etc.
Hopefully you meant to say a couple of more days!
I hope Nokia has people working on this on weekends, as this is the #1 issue with Ovi right now, the 2nd being how slow the QA and publishing to Ovi is... Very disconcerting.

There must be a reason for the reports not showing:
1. Nokia had all kind of problems to begin with and maybe the sales data was lost/not working properly, hence they wait few weeks so it is compensating.
2. The sales are so low that just make Nokia want not to show them in order not to spoil the store and company image.
3. There is something really unprofessional about how this store is maintained and developed, the programmers are really unprofessional.
Either of the reasons above (and there might be some others) Nokia should at least invent a proper one. It is not acceptable (if they want to have a successful product) to ignore everybody or keep saying "Wait".
To Ron: you won't give everybody false hopes, Ovi Store will.
I will report the displeasure shown becuase of the delay.

So far there's been very little in the way of download statistics released - I've only seen one blog/poll, which had near-meaningless numbers. However, when it was picked up by other news sources, the misinterpretation of the statistics was predictable and very favorable for Nokia. Not that I think there's anything wrong with that.
A good place to start would be some basic communication with all of us publishers. We would be much more understanding if the issues were explained to us with some sort of firm timeline laid out. But right now we don't have a clue how things are going and if we should invest more resources into releasing products on Ovi.
I really believe that Ovi can be a success for both Nokia and us Publishers but we are going to have to work together to make it happen.
Having to wait so long for the sales reports is really disappointing.
What is even more disappointing is the way the publishers have to practically beg and nag to receive answers regarding the status of such issues.
If the publishers would have been a larger community like Nokia's end costumers (device purchasers), we would have never been treated with so much delay and a state of incommunicado. Nokia needs to understand that the publishers/developers are a key for adding a lot of revenue.
All we are asking is a little of respect. R-e-s-p-e-c-t.
I wonder, does anyone know, when the iPhone AppStore was launched, how long did it take till the sales reports were available for the developers?
Any updates with the sales reports???
