Microsoft announces Office suite, other solutions for Nokia devices

12 Aug

Microsoft and Nokia today announced an alliance whereby Microsoft will provide its Office suite for Nokia phones. This will be the first time that Microsoft will provide its mobile Office suite to any other device vendor. Eventually, the two companies would also work on developing new user experiences for Nokia devices. Nokia will bring MS Office suite with its upcoming range of E-Series devices and will come to other smartphones over a period of time. The two companies will also work toward providing enterprise grade services for carriers and individuals.

While it in no way means that Nokia is cutting lines to Windows Mobile (at least for the moment) but it shows how thretened the two companies are from recent competition from Apple, RIM and Google. Mind you, till not very long ago, Microsoft and Nokia were embroiled in cut-throat competition in the smartphone space.
