Nokia Offers Windows Live on Handsets

Susan Hall

Nokia has partnered with Microsoft to offer the Windows Live suite of Web services, such as e-mail and instant messaging, on some phone models, reports a Reuters story on InformationWeek.


Users in 11 countries in Europe and the Middle East who use Nokia's S60 handsets -- the Nokia N73, N80 Internet Edition, N95, N76 and N93i -- will have direct access to Hotmail, Messenger, Contacts and Windows Live Spaces through the handsets' "Download!" feature, Computerworld reports.


The service will be added in other countries later.


While the services are available this week on the five models, it will start pre-installing them next year on Series 40 handsets, but only on phones bought at retail price, reports Times Online. It's seeking approval to add the software on subsidized models from network operators who tightly control available applications to maximize their profits, the article says.
