Today in Mobile

Well, that didn’t take long. Nokia launched its much-anticipated Ovi in the wee hours today, and already the company has apologized for “performance issues” after receiving complaints about sluggish responsiveness and sign-in errors (not to mention its sparse library and clunky UI). I applaud Nokia’s aggressive strategy of becoming a mobile-Internet-services company, and I still have high hopes for Ovi. But its feeble debut will be noticed by consumers and developers alike.
