Microsoft and Nokia team up
Microsoft and Nokia announced
a partnership around Office Mobile today.
Microsoft is going to bring the Office Mobile to the Nokia handsets, which are mainly based on the Symbian operating system.
This is interesting, as Microsoft competes against Nokia with their own Windows Phone (former Windows Mobile) OS software.
On the other hand, it is not unusual for Microsoft to port it's software to other operating platforms, Office runs on Mac for years.
Also, Windows doesn't make a phone of their own, as such they are not directly competing against Nokia, which is mainly a handset maker (with a software portfolio - QT springs to mind).
This is again a sign that the mobile computing space is heating up, it's an arena where the big corps are actively playing a lot of chess...
