Nokia Store gifts roll out (again)

Published by at

The Nokia Store application is currently inviting users to claim a number of free gifts. The store has had several rounds of free gifts in the past where users could claim paid-for applications free of charge. On offer in this round of pre-Christmas cheer is: Camera Lover Pack, Angry Birds, MoodagentNimbuzz free and eBuddy. However, contents may vary from device to device. Read on for more details.

Well done if you read the above list and realised that most are already free applications! The first two applications, Camera Lover Pack and Angry Birds normally cost £1.50, but are now available as gifts. However, the other three applications are already free to download. Nimbuzz free is an ad-supported version of Nimbuzz; Moodagent and eBuddy have always been free! So we're rather mystified at free applications being offered as free gifts!

This gift set has been reported elsewhere as being exclusive to the N8. Having checked some devices in the All About Symbian office, we found that this is not the case. Our C7 received the gift set notification, but it was only offered to one out of two of our N8s. However, our C7 was offered Joikuspot Premium instead of Camera Lover Pack. That's quite a difference - Joikuspot Premium costs £8.00, far more than Camera Lover Pack's £1.50 price tag!

If you find a different selection on your device, please let us know in the comments.
