According to Nokia, the application (which is actually a communications client) “connects directly with a company’s communications systems to streamline mobile collaboration. Communicator Mobile will allow users “to see their colleagues’ availability, and click to communicate with them using the best method, from IM to email, text to phone call”.
For the beginning, Microsoft Communicator Mobile will be available only on the Nokia E72 and Nokia E52 (users can get it via Ovi Store). In the future, Nokia will bring the app to other smartphones, including the Nokia E5.
“This application really provides a much more efficient way to work with others as you can see if someone is busy or available, and the best way to start a conversation with them. It also meets all of the requirements for enterprise: cost effective to implement, secure, familiar and reliable,” declared Ukko Lappalainen, Vice President at Nokia.
As for Microsoft’s Office suite (Word, PowerPoint, Excel), Nokia didn’t say when it will be available for its phones, but it shouldn’t be long until this happens.
