Microsoft and Nokia announced today that they would deliver Symbian software updates called Microsoft Apps. The updates will add business productivity tools for the new Symbian Belle device and further bolster Microsoft and Nokia's business relationship.  Plus give a boost to Symbian's business use.

The apps will also be available for anyone looking to upgrade from Symbian Anna to Belle. The free apps include:

  • Microsoft Lync 2010 Mobile – for cost efficient IM, presence, audio and web meetings on-the-go
  • Microsoft PowerPoint Broadcast – quick broadcast of presentations directly from PC to mobile
  • Microsoft OneNote – rich note taking with images
  • Syncs with Microsoft SkyDrive. Microsoft Document Connection – single view to documents stored on mobile, including email attachments as well as documents on Microsoft SharePoint 2010 sites.

Expect to see these apps during the fourth quarter of 2011. Additional updates are scheduled for 2012 which will add Microsoft OneNote sync with Sharepoint and native applications for Microsoft Word, Excel, and Powerpoint.
