Here is good news for independent developers:

“The goal here is to lower the barrier to entry for Ovi Publishers by simplifying the tools and the process, as well as removing some of the cost associated with developing mobile apps for distribution in Ovi Store. For Ovi Publishers creating Symbian apps there are initial investment costs such as obtaining a Publisher ID and paying a third party to have their apps Symbian signed. Currently, this can take around four weeks, and impose expenses for the developer up to $215 (USD). With this public beta, we are exploring a developer workflow to reduce the time for Ovi Publishers to two weeks and bring the cost involved to $0 (USD). At this time apps written with Qt, Symbian C++, and Adobe Flash Lite are supported.  If you’re interested in participating in this public beta,

All you have to do is send an email to with your Ovi Publish username and you’ll receive more details.”
