Nokia Ovi Files to be discontinued

Finnish company pulls the plug after poor numbers

When it first appeared it seemed as though cloud-based services would soon rule the world, and someday, maybe they will, but the wait has taken its toll.

Nokia has decided to pull the plug on its Ovi Files service after poor membership figures suggested it just wasn't viable anymore.

Users have been told they have a month before the service will be shut down, luckily Ovi Files is a sychronisation service so any data lost in the shut down will only have been copied from what was originally on a hard drive.

The service, which allowed users to access the data on their computers on the move was bought up by Nokia in 2007, it appears however as though the need for such a service has died out, resulting in Nokia's decision.
