Nokia is about to shake up the app store world.

The Finnish company is planning to roll out an online store for mobile applications later this month. Though Apple ( AAPL – news – people ), Research In Motion ( RIMM – news – people ) and Google ( GOOG – news – people ) already offer similar services, Nokia’s ( NOK – news – people ) launch promises to be the biggest app store opening yet and could re-shape the mobile applications market.

As the world’s largest handset maker, Nokia is used to big launches. The store, which the company is calling Ovi Store after the Finnish word for “door,” is no exception. Niklas Savander, Nokia’s executive vice president of services, says it will debut with a catalog of 20,000 items. In comparison, Apple and RIM launched their stores with a few hundred apps; Google’s opened with a few dozen.
