Nokia MOSH Shutdown is Official Now


Nokia has finally announced that it will be replaced by the Ovi Store starting May 1.

According to the "farewell mail" sent by Nokia to MOSH users, the service has only 30 days of life left, after which users will be redirected to the Ovi Store if caught trying to access MOSH. This also means that your MOSH account will no longer be accessible, and stuff that you have uploaded goes as well. The Ovi Store will require you to sign up again, which you can do here as of now.

MOSH had become a headache of sorts for Nokia thanks to some of the unmoderated content, which resulted in legal problems and copyright issues. The Ovi Store, on the other hand, will be a fully moderated, Nokia controlled environment, like the Apple App Store and the likes.

As for what to expect in the Ovi Store, the farewell mail gives some idea of that as well. The Store content will be heavily customizable and will be tailored to your needs based on your location and social preferences. There is a Social Discovery feature available as well with the Ovi Store, which will automatically allow content from your social networks to be prioritized and made available for download and repeat consumption. In short, localization and tailored content seems to be the Ovi Stores mantra.

If you're a heavy MOSH user, you might as well have a last look at the store because there isn't much time left now!
