Nokia won't be caught in a MOSH
When Nokia announced last month that it will be opening The Ovi Store for mobile apps, the company noted that the content in the store would be of the same nature as the content previously available on Download, WidSets, and MOSH.
Previously is the operative word in that statement, according to a report from Reuters today. According to the report, MOSH will be closing down.
Describing MOSH in favorable terms is difficult. Nokia calls it "a mobile content site where you can fill your phone with unique, user-created mobile content," but that doesn't tell you much about what it's capable of. Vaguely like a social FTP site, registered users upload content to a MOSH portal that other users can connect to and download from. As one would expect, it's not an uncommon way to freely exchange all sorts of copyrighted content.
The service has been in beta since its August 2007 launch, and its closure does not yet have a publicized date.
