    Question Device popularity statistics?

    Does Nokia provide statistics about device popularity on the Ovi Store? (the various devices share in terms of total downloaded apps).

    This information can help us publishers a lot, in trying to decide which devices to focus on...

    Thanks,
    Ori

    I was going to post a thread about this today Our product is a music entertainment product. I'd be interested in finding out if that in some way biases our download platforms.

    We don't have any V5 products on OVI yet, only V3, and they're available for all 240x320 v3 phones EXCEPT N76 and N81.

    About 50% of our downloads are on the N95 platforms. The next largest group is N96 at about 10%. Following at 8%-10% on different titles are the N82, N73, and N78.


    Would other publishers be willing to share device stats from their OVI reports?

    We currently have two apps published. One is compatible with all 3rd & 5th devices. Right now the N97 makes up for 45% of the sales, the E71 about 10%, the 5800 7% - The N95 8GB makes up less than 6%. So if you're not supporting 5th edition devices I think you're probably missing out on a huge amount of sales.

    Cheers!

    Thanks for sharing this info guys !

    We don't offer an S60 5th edition version yet either and our numbers are quite similar to Pat's. For example, our top 5 devices for July are:

    #1 Nokia E71 33.3 %
    #2 Nokia N95 8GB 20.0 %
    #3 Nokia N95 11.1 %
    #4 Nokia N96 8.9 %
    #5 Nokia E63 8.9 %

    It's interesting (I think) that there are no S40 devices on the list, even though we support quite a few of them. This could be explained, perhaps, by the fact that it's impossible to publish for S40-5th-Edition devices on Ovi without going through the prohibitively expensive Java Verified process, due to Nokia's amazing "No-Verisign-Or-Thawte-Certificate-On-Many-S40-5th-Edition-Device"'s screw up

    But from looking at Josh's numbers it's obvious that we should add S60 5th edition ASAP. I guess it means we need to buy yet another phone - sigh... Having to purchase all these phones makes it so much less economical for small ISVs to develop for Ovi...

    Hi Ori-

    Just curious what type of app you have in the store with so many E71 downloads. Is it a business/productivity app? (If not maybe we need to evaluate supporting the non-portrait devices for our entertainment title.)

    We know we need to support the V5 TS devices, but are in the same financial boat... no money to buy new phones.

    Thanks,
    Pat

    Hi Pat,

    we sell a video app and the videos can relate to many subjects - business, entertainment, education, whatever... So I don't think you can draw many conclusions from our stats
