The Ovi store is compatible with many Nokia phones

Mobile owners may wish to sell their used phones in order to pick up a new Nokia handset that is compatible with the firm's Ovi Store.

The Finnish manufacturer has recently revealed the latest range of applications to become available for compatible phones, including SkyMap, a £3 app that gives users an insight into the planets, stars and constellations that can be seen on a clear night.

Also available to owners of Ovi-compatible Nokia phones is The Perfect Egg - which offers a visual guide to cooking a flawless boiled egg - and Salsa Basics, which aims to introduce people to the Latin dance.

This uses live video and animations to help teach both men and women the basic steps and upper-body movement and the first set of instructions, titled Salsa Basic Step, is in the Ovi Store now.

Those who trade in their used phones to purchase a Nokia handset compatible with its Ovi Store will be able to access both paid-for and free content, including games, city guides and social network tools, as well as videos and music.
