For those thinking of developing a iPhone job app what about a Nokia job app as well?

The Nokia 5800 has been selling really well and is Nokia's first clear response to Apple's iphone. It also is a touchscreen handset and is firmly aimed at the mass market. I really like it and I think Nokia are making some great strides on the market of late. With the launch of the Nokia Ovi appstore coming soon we might see more developers begin to roll out products focused on specific nokia handsets as a way of targeting the big nokia market whilst avoiding the problem of trying to serve every single Nokia/ Symbian device.

Some of its impressive stats are:
  • Three million 5800s sold globally since its launch in November 2008, and currently shipping more than one million units per month.
  • the 5800 was Nokia’s number one revenue and gross margin generating product, and was the number one volume and value product in the UK in Q1 2009
  •  UKs biggest selling portable music device - outselling the ipod
There are many but one of the really cool things I like about this device is that Nimbuzz the voip/ messaging mobile app has released a special version of its app for the 5800.

Expect the job apps to also follow suit very soon after Ovi launches. For those who are thinking of creating iPhone apps you may want to think how portabile your concept is over to the Nokia platform onces you get your hands on the developer kit.
