Launched in December 2008, Nokia’s Ovi Mail service has proven to be quite successful until now, as more than 1 million users have registered for it.
Designed to be easily set up and used directly on phones, Ovi Mail is targeted at users located in the developing world, as it doesn’t require you to have a PC.
According to Nokia, over 650,000 Ovi Mail accounts were created on a phone.
The mobile email service is mostly used in countries like India, Indonesia, Russia, South Africa and Mexico, on phones like Nokia 2330 classic, Nokia 5310 XpressMusic and Nokia 2630.
“More than just reaching a company milestone, this proves to us that there is a real appetite in the developing world for these types of tailored services. For first-time email users, Ovi Mail provides a digital identity and we are thrilled by its rapidly rising adoption rate,” declared Tom Furlong, head of Consumer Messaging at Nokia.
Ovi Mail is currently available in more than 180 countries around the world. It can be accessed directly on your Nokia S40 or S60 phone, via the email setup wizard. Alternatively, users can access the service online, at this address.
