I have been using Nokia’s Ovi Music, formerly known as Nokia Music, since it’s release in 2008. Or was it 2007? Since I had a N97 when it was released it made sense to buy music directly from Nokia as I was looking forward to the Comes With Music option some phones had. However, to use Ovi Music I had to sign up with an account in the UK.

Earlier today I happened to go to the site to see if anything was new and I noticed that the United States is now listed amongst the countries. When I selected it I saw a screen stating they’re applying the “final touches”!

I’ve used Napster and Amazon to buy music but I have always wanted one source for my music.  Going to the UK works fine but I would rather get the music from my home country. The Ovi Suite currently available for Nokia devices makes using Ovi Music an even easier choice since I can do everything right from Ovi Suite, including searching and purchasing music. But in the US you have to trick Ovi Suite into thinking you’re not in the US by changing your base location (currently set to the UK for me). If you select the United States you get the “we’re not in your area yet” message. Let’s home today’s discover means I’ll be able to get the music here in the states!

With the pending release of the N8 and the E7 around the corner I got to wondering, “What is more important to people, a 12mp camera or a QWERTY keyboard?” I figured why not ask the masses?

Many of us want to take great pictures with our phones (me included) and reduce the number of devices we need to carry. So are we willing to fore-go the speed and accuracy of QWERTY keyboard for great pics?



Then there are those of us that want to use a device more for text messaging, email, social media updates, and other typing heavy functions. So are those QWERTY-types ready to drop-down to an 8mp camera so they can have the physical keyboard?
