    Cost of getting first app to market

    Hello Forum,

    I have a few apps in the apple store already and am interested in porting one in particular to other plafroms, starting with S60. Can anyone give me a quick summary of the total costs involved of getting the first app into Ovi store.

    From what I can see there is €50 sign up fee to Ovi, fee for Publisher iD (€200), fees for testing (around €250), which comes to €500 so far.

    Have I missed any fees here?

    Is there any less expensive way of doing this?

    Thanks in advance
    Rick

    dunno where you got the 250 for testing really. Basically if you use the capabilities allowing using express signing the cost will be 10 Euroes per signing round.

    As the development tools are free, and the RDA device's can be used freely for testing, I would assume you could get it done with those ones then.
