Is Nokia Trying to Gain Profit On Their Own Applications?

by Darla Mack

Nic_96x96 When I was into S40 I was a huge fan of Nokia's Image Converter.  The Nokia Image Converter, which I had mentioned before (here and here), used to be a part of Nokia's PC suite and allowed users to edit their own images to use as wallpapers.  This was a popular option for S40 devices.

On Nokia's website there is a list of extra applications available for download.  Nokia Image Converter, which is now compatible with the N95 is listed.  But there is one thing there that is puzzling...

To download Nokia Image Converter you must PURCHASE the app from Nokia's Software Market.  Purchase??

This bothers me a bit.  Why should I pay for something that at one point used to be free?  I can hear Agile Messenger users mumbling under their breath about the same thing.

Nokia's Image Converter is selling for 9.95Euro and I can't justify the charge.  Why not just bring it back and incorporate it into PC Suite like it was before.
