Ovi Share is shutting down

by subacati

Is this the final nail in the Nokia coffin? …

Nokia's Ovi services provided mobile users with all the functions that a desktop user took for granted.
Now they are shutting down Ovi share. (wasn't that shut down already? :confused: )
Here is the email they sent me.

Dear Ovi Share user – You are receiving this email
because you have previously
used the Ovi Share service. Ovi
Share is an online service that
enables Nokia users to upload
and share files, typically photos and videos. As of 30 May 2012, we will be
discontinuing the Ovi Share
service. If you have files stored
using Ovi Share, please click here for detailed download instructions. If you already
have another copy of your files
existing on your computer or
another sharing service, you do
not need to do anything. You will continue to have
access to Ovi Share until 30
May 2012; however you will
not be able to upload new files
after 13 March 2012. Why are we making this
change? The Ovi Share shutdown is part
of Nokia's revised services
mission to focus on mobile and
location based services. As a
result, the Ovi Share service
will be closing. However, you will still be able to use your Ovi
Share username and password
to access other Nokia services.
We encourage you to use one
of the many online photo-
sharing services as a way to store and share your photos
and videos moving forward. What does this mean for you
as an Ovi Share user? If you do not have a copy of
your files any other place other
than Ovi Share, you will need
to download those files before
30 May 2012. To download
your files to your computer, please click here for detailed instructions. After 30 May
2012, your files will not be
accessible from the Ovi Share
service and will be deleted. If
you already have another copy
of your files existing on your computer or another sharing
service, you do not need to do
anything. If you have any further
questions about this service
change or need help
downloading your files, please
contact Nokia Care by going to http://nokia.com/support and then selecting “Contact
Support.” Nokia apologizes for this
inconvenience, and we thank
you for using Ovi Share. Sincerely,
Nokia
