Nokia and Microsoft – Another Business Deal

Nokia and Microsoft – Another Business Deal

After the controversial Yahoo! and Microsoft partnership for the search engine market, Microsoft Corp. has reached a business agreement with Nokia Corp. in making a mobile version of MS Office suite of software that works on Nokia mobile phones.

Microsoft and Nokia Partnership
The deal with Nokia -the world’s biggest mobile phone maker- could help Microsoft play a broader role in mobile devices while strengthening its Office business in the face of competition from free Web-based word processors, spreadsheets and other applications from search giant Google Inc., also from Sun Microsystems Inc. and others. Microsoft, is also said to be testing a Web-based version of Office.

Currently the only devices that have native versions of Microsoft Office are those running Windows Mobile. This deal could see that change for the first time. No confirmation of details has been provided, but it’s likely that this mobile version will be an accompaniment to Office 2010, along with the Web-based suite.

So what do you think of this business deal? I understand that when two leaders match up like this Nokia and Microsoft partnership, there might be two possibilities. Either the match will rule the world, or there might be a complete failure.

I believe that Microsoft and Nokia are very good in marketing and are present in the retail distribution channels worldwide. This partnership could succeed.
