Ovi Files magically metamorphoses into free service

Chris Ziegler

Originally priced at $80 a year for a 10GB bucket, Nokia's online storage venture -- Ovi Files, formerly Files on Ovi -- has now converted into a free service. Presumably pressured by a variety of free services that operated in the same vein, Nokia's move gives phone users (and not just those on S60, either) a particularly economical way to get back to files stored on their PC and store a whole bunch of stuff in the cloud that can be accessed even when the PC's off. Existing users who had paid are apparently having their subscriptions refunded, so yeah, high-fives all around -- we know better than to bite the hand that's feeding us 10 free gig.
