Topic: Nokia, Microsoft Launch New Mobile Software

Nokia and Microsoft  unveiled on Wednesday the first result of their new software collaboration aimed at breaking the dominance of Research in Motion's BlackBerry in wireless services for corporations.

Nokia and Microsoft, at one time fierce rivals in the mobile telecommunications business, announced the alliance in August 2009. They expect to offer Nokia phones running Microsoft's Office programs later this year.

On Wednesday the companies unveiled Communicator Mobile software, which enables people to see their colleagues' availability, and click to communicate with them using instant messenger, e-mail, text or phone call.

The names and status of colleagues are embedded directly in the devices' contacts application. Owners of Nokia E52 and E72 models can download it as of today from Nokia's Ovi Store.

It's really insane how dominant RIM still is in the corporate world.  Although, there is a lot of Android infiltration in the market, which is nice to see.

At the same time, though, Microsoft’s revenues got a big boost from the sales of mobile phones. Microsoft will continue to face a challenge in creating mobile products that excite people, even as it cuts costs to prevent Nokia from dragging the company’s overall profits down.

In the earnings report released Tuesday, Nokia did just that, contributing to a decline in Microsoft’s net income and helping its revenue jump 18 percent with the addition of $2 billion in Nokia device sales.
