ZA’s nokia store joins others in failing

Further more on Nokia’s music store fail I recently found out that The South African branch or what ever they call them launched a localized version of the music store.

Nokia has a large(55.07%) share of the mobile’s with in South Africa in fact they have the largest, Yes I know this is only from people downloading applications but most of these users will be tech savvy enough to be able to use a mobile music store.

Back to the problem at hand. With this huge potential market Nokia’s za version of the store is even worse then worldwide and uk at least even with their bugs they allow any browser(mobile/web) to view their site and is mostly usable.

Firstly viewing the site from firefox. “Unsupported Device”

Nokia Music Store does not currently support your device. Further information about Nokia Music Store and compatible devices can be found at the Nseries web site.
You can access the Nokia Music Store from a PC using Internet Explorer

So that is what I did using Useragnet Switcher set to N85 one of the required Nseries I get redirected to an error page

An error has occurred – we apologise for the inconvenience.
If you are using a mobile device please try reloading the Nokia Music Store
If you are using a PC with Internet Explorer click here to try the main Nokia Music site
If the problem persists, then click here and tell us which page you were trying to view

Nokia are you trying to get users to use your product? The Uk version is complaining about slow sales? Maybe their product just doesn’t work good enough.

Their profits seems to be falling quite drastically is laying off staff an attempt to fix this?
