More than 400 developers top 1 million downloads on Nokia Store

And 3 have more than 100 million downloads

More than 400 developers top 1 million downloads on Nokia Store
Nokia's smartphone future may lie with Windows Phone, but the Finnish firm's Series 40 and Symbian-based marketplace continues to draw in downloads for a sizeable clutch of developers.

Stats posted on Nokia's developer blog peg the total number of apps available at 120,000 – that's 20,000 ahead of Windows Phone Marketplace, out of interest – with more than 120 million registered customers having amassed 5 billion cumulative downloads to date.

That's from a rate of 15 million app downloads a day, with an impressive 80 percent of traffic to the Nokia Store resulting in at least 1 download.

Such a conversion rate means 411 developers now boast a total of more than 1 million downloads on the marketplace, 15 percent of which have hit 10 million downloads or more.

In all, 28 developers have 25 million downloads each, nine have amassed 50 million and a lucky three – UTV IndiaGames, Pico Brothers and Inode – having topped 100 million.

Of Windows Phone Marketplace – recently, and perhaps confusingly, rebadged with the Nokia Store logo for Lumia owners – Nokia claims the platform is "starting to thrive", with more than 100,000 developers on board and 3 million dev tool downloads since launch.
