I’ve made no secret of my lackluster feelings towards Nokia’s Ovi Store, which is supposed to make it easy and pleasurable to find applications for Nokia cellphones like the new N97, but I do think the Shazam music discovery software is worth pushing, so I’ll let this one through.
After all, Shazam is available on most other mobile devices, including the iPhone, BlackBerry and Android phones, so it’s about time Nokia got some of the love.
Until 30th November, and purely on a first-come-first-served basis, Shazam will be free to download from the Ovi Store.
It will run on Symbian OS, S60 devices, though not all features are available on every handset. The give-away is only for 30 days, though, which is a bit mean. After that, it’ll cost £5 for the fully featured version.
