The great news start rolling out for business users from the Finnish mobile maker Nokia – the company announced its first suite of Microsoft productivity apps for Nokia Belle-enabled smartphone and that comes at a price tag of “free,” providing users with four new business applications that extend both Nokia and Microsoft partnership beyond their Windows Phone collaboration – the update make it possible for “anyone” who owes a Belle phone.
David Mason, head of the product marketing team for Business Mobility, states, “The idea of IT consumerisation is no longer just an idea – it’s real and happening everywhere around us. People are making their own choices when it comes to deciding which smartphone they want to carry – at home and at work. And there’s really no need for a separate phone just to check your work email. With all the right security policies, great devices and the right apps – especially when they were developed and tested by Microsoft – both you and your IT manager can stay happy.”
Microsoft Business Apps:
- Microsoft OneNote enables you to create rich text notebooks using words and images. These notebooks are automatically synced with SkyDrive, so you’ll never lose an important note again, and you can access them from all your Windows-enabled devices.
- Microsoft Document Connection provides a single view to all documents in your device, attached in your emails and in SharePoint. See all your important documents in one glimpse and filter them by person, time and document type to find the one you are looking for.
- Microsoft Lync 2010 Mobile gives you the ability chat with your colleagues using IM. Always keep the team up-to-date with your presence (online, offline, busy, and so on).
- Microsoft PowerPoint Broadcast lets you share your PowerPoint presentations from your PC via your phone. You can also combine these with Lync audio messages, too.
Microsoft Apps are available for the Nokia E7, Nokia C7, Nokia C6-01, Nokia X7, Nokia Oro, Nokia 700, Nokia 701, Nokia 603 right away, and later for Nokia N8, Nokia E6 and Nokia 500. The new productivity apps will be delivered to your phone via the software update app on your phone, and only once you’ve updated to Nokia Belle.
