After Nokia announced their Ovi Suite for the PC, most Mac users felt left out in the cold. Sure, third-party solutions were available as alternatives on a function-by-function basis, but none challenged the simple one-stop, one-click syncing/media handling of Ovi.
Looks like the Apple crowd might be getting the attention they’ve clamored for. On Monday, a “Macintosh Software Developer” job post went up in Nokia’s career section. From the post:
Join the Nokia development team to help us take our Mac user experience to the next level. This new and exciting initiative will give you a chance to become part of the Ovi development team. We work in a challenging and inspiring environment using the latest technologies to combine mobile, Mac/PC and internet user experiences together. This team will help bring enabling solutions for Nokia device owners on the Apple Mac platform, and we are now looking for highly skilled professionals with proven track record of delivering products on time to join us.
Seeing as Nokia has been claiming a Mac Ovi suite was “coming soon” for some time now, we’re hoping this job post is for the expansion of an already existing team, rather than the first steps of creating a new one. Furthermore, we hope “soon” actually means “soon” – if you’re not willing to drop $40 bucks for something like The Missing Sync, booting up Windows every time you want to sync gets old fast.
