Microsoft and Nokia Plan Office Deal

In yet another high-profile deal, Microsoft announced a partnership whereby mobile giant Nokia will now carry Microsoft Office products on its handsets.

For its part, Nokia loses a competitor. Until now, Microsoft's Windows Mobile operating system had the advantage of being the only platform to run Office products.

This gives Microsoft and their planned release of Office 2010 a larger platform to expand across, while also taking advantage of its browser-based features.

Nokia's 40% market share of the mobile market in turn gives a big boost to Microsoft in the wireless sector. Nokia reported over 100 million handsets sold through the second quarter of this year alone.
