Today Nokia announced its intent to acquire mobile consumer email provider Oz Communications. Oz provides email capabilities for wireless networks operators who offer access to AOL, Gmail, ICQ, Windows Live Hotmail, Windows Live Messenger and Yahoo. Oz already has more than 5.5 million monthly paid users. Nokia will be able to use Oz's technology to provide email and messaging services for its Series 40 and S60 phones. Nokia hopes to complete the acquisition during the fourth quarter. OZ will be merged into Nokia's Services & Software operative unit.

Does this mean their IM client won't suck?

Cause last time I checked, it did. Slow navigating, unstable, and it was still a "Mobile Messaging" type thing, so on AIM you didn't get your full buddy list. This was the AT&T "Mobile IM" client.

I guess S60 gets the biggest win here...
I have OZ email and im on a Motorola V3xx and its is the worst software I have ever dealt with. Bought a new phone to get away from it. You couldn't pay me to use it again.
