Nokia’s soon to be rebranded Ovi Store is continuing its growth, offering Symbian phone users a slowly but steadily increasing number of applications. Together with that, the number of downlaods per day is also increasing to currently account for 6.5 million.

If there were 48,000 applications in the Ovi Store last month, the end of July brings a milestone of 50,000 applications. It’s a steady growth if we do the maths but the number of daily downloads has increased by 1.5 million since April. The higher figures are due to “increased demand for apps from the approximately 225-million strong Symbian customer base”, said Nokia.

Taking a look at the big picture, Nokia’s Ovi Store can’t compete with Apple’s iTunes App Store in terms of available applications. Cupertino has reached the milestone of 500,000 software titles and Google has reached 200,000 as back as eight months ago. Comparing to the Windows Phone Marketplace which is getting close to 30,000 apps, Nokia Ovi store is somewhat larger but Redmond’s software market has reached 30k in less than one year.
