Last August, Microsoft and Nokia teamed up to bring Microsoft Office functionality to Nokia’s smartphone lineup. The first fruits of this joint venture have come in the form of the newly announced Microsoft Communicator Mobile. Just as the name implies, Communicator Mobile will improve the peer-to-peer communication within Nokia’s Symbian-powered handsets by allowing users to view a colleague’s current status, check their availability on a certain date, and launch an IM session, send a text, or write an email from within the contact card. The mobile communications client will be available initially from the Ovi Store for Nokia’s E71 and E72 handsets, while future E-Series handsets will ship with Communicator Mobile pre-installed.
