Microsoft and Nokia have just announced a new software collaboration called Microsoft Communicator Mobile for Nokia. The software lets Nokia phone owners see their colleagues’ availability and can click to call them, email them or start an instant messaging session. The contacts’ names and their current statuses are available in the device’s contacts application, too.
The application is currently available for both Nokia E52 and E72 model phones and can be downloaded now from the Ovi Store.
Later this year, the companies plan to further solidify their partnership with the launch of Microsoft Office applications for Nokia.
