Nokia to make Microsoft mobile software according to closed deal

How things in the mobile industry have been changing lately. I can still remember how Microsoft and Nokia would go at it in the mobile space but now Nokia has been supporting Microsoft Exchange software in it’s Nokia phones. It looks like that Nokia and Microsoft are slowly forming an alliance in response to the growing competition from the likes of Apple, Google and Blackberry.

Now Nokia and Microsoft has closed a deal for Nokia to make a mobile version of Microsoft’s Office software that will run on Nokia’s mobile phones.

This should really be interesting to see! With the recent news about Nokia considering dumping the Symbian OS, I wonder where the mobile version of Office will run? Under Maemo (ahem/cough! Linux)?

Before we know it, Nokia will be running Windows mobile on their cell phones. :-)
