Vodafone users, who are using Nokia handsets, can now make purchases from the Ovi store without the need to pay instantly.
This is as a part of Vodafone and Nokia agreement, which is in final stages, to provide operator billing for Ovi store.
Though representatives of both the companies have denied the move, and said that there is no such plan in the near future.
Users can now purchase application from the Ovi store, which will be added to the post paid bill or can be later deducted from their prepaid balance.
Till now Nokia users had to pay through their credit card for apps purchased from Ovi store.
The deal is likely to be announced next week. Last month Nokia had announced a similar partnership with Reliance Communication.
Speaking about partnership with Reliance communication, V Ramnath, the director of operator channels at Nokia India, said, “The response from consumers in India has already exceeded our expectations with the number of weekly downloads crossing 4.5 million. We believe our partnership will help accelerate this further.
Ovi Store is a mobile content store for Nokia devices, and has applications, games, videos, podcasts, productivity tools, and web and location-based services.
Launched in 2009, Nokia’s Ovi Store serves about 28 million downloads per week, of which about 4.5 million are from India.
