Microsoft owns the Nokia’s mobile phone business which sells devices like Nokia Series 40, Nokia Asha, Nokia X and others apart from the Lumia Windows Phone devices. Microsoft today annoucned that starting in Q1 2015, Opera Software will extend its Opera Mobile Store to work with even more Nokia phones, including those that run Series 40, Series 60, Symbian, Asha and Nokia X software. Microsoft will shut down Nokia Store.
Opera Mobile Store is one of the top app stores in the world, with more than 300,000 apps and games, available across 13 content categories. It’s popular, too – with about 200 million unique monthly users, hailing from 196 regions around the world.
While this means saying “farewell” to Nokia Store when the transition to Opera Mobile Store is completed in the first half of 2015, it also means people can continue to load up on great apps for their classic Nokia phones.
