Nokia today announced that it is partnering with Microsoft to deliver Symbian software updates called Microsoft Apps to Symbian Belle devices. Using the on-board phone update tools, Symbian Belle devices will have access to a number of Microsoft productivity applications later this year. The apps include: Microsoft Lync for enterprise IM and collaboration; PowerPoint Broadcast for pushing PowerPoint presentations from PCs to mobile phones; OneNote with SkyDrive for note-taking; and Document Connection for viewing Microsoft documents on Symbian Belle phones. In 2012, Nokia says it will add Microsoft OneNote sync with SharePoint as well as Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint as native applications. Nokia believes the upcoming availability of these productivity applications proves that it remains committed to supporting Symbian devices. Despite the announcement of several Symbian Belle devices, Nokia will shift its main smartphone business to Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 Mango platform in the coming months.
