Our thoughts about Nokia Life Tools

Ovi Life Tools is obviously a great service. It is innovative and does not require sophisticated technology, meaning that hardware cost will be cheap. A basic phone with the SMS feature can access the Ovi Life Tools service and with as low as N4,000 one can get such a phone in Nigeria.

This service will reduce the burden of accessing information especially for people who can not currently access such information on the web, either because they cannot access or afford an internet connection.

Local Nigerian content is even scarce on the web so Ovi Life Tools with its promise of enriching our lives with local information is a welcome development and will be useful to all. It is also affordable as users do not pay on per SMS basis; rather the Ovi Life Tools service is bundled at around N200 or N250 monthly depending on the chosen service.

Nokia has always shown a great understanding of emerging markets like Nigeria and the Ovi Life Tools is a great example. Emerging markets need innovative services that make use of existing infrastructure, while they wait for the much talked about investments in new technologies.

They also want them cheap and easy to use. The fact that Nokia Ovi Life Tools now boosts of over 6.3 million subscribers in about a year shows that the service is already making waves and now that it is in Nigeria it is only going to get better.
