Nokia to licence Exchange Activesync from MS

Recommended Posts

Talk about an unholy alliance... this is sure to have certain Nokia-hating maniacs in the community jumping up and down (you know who you are! :lol:)

Our good friend Jorgen from infoSync World is down in Cannes (lucky so and so), and has broken the following news:

Nokia's Enterprise Solutions business group today announced that it has licensed Microsoft's Exchange Server ActiveSync protocol to enable wireless and direct synchronization between Microsoft Exchange Server and future Nokia enterprise mobile devices. The terms of the licensing agreement were not disclosed.

The collaboration between the two companies will allow Nokia to build a direct over-the-air synchronization link between Nokia enterprise mobile devices running on Nokia's Series 60 and Series 80 software platforms and Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 for e-mail and other personal information management (PIM) data, such as calendar information and contacts.

Nokia said the company will continue to support the OMA Data Synchronization protocol and its own Nokia PC Suite, a local connectivity solution that utilizes OMA Data Synchronization for PCs and Nokia mobile devices.

Very interesting news... the connectivity on Nokia devices has always let down the experience for me personally, so this could be a great breakthrough for them.

It's sure to be popular amongst Series 80 (Nokia 9500) users, Nokia's most enterprise-centric customers!
