Nokia launches Exchange e-mail support on 80M S60 phones

Functionality to be free and will enable users to connect with corporate Exchange functions

Nokia announced today it has enabled Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync for all 43 of its S60 Third Edition wireless devices, a total of about 80 million wireless devices globally.

Current users of the S60 smart phones, which cut across a range of prices, will be able to download a client to the phones that allows them to work with an Exchange server, making it easier for those companies to support Exchange e-mail.

Future S60 devices will have the client built in, said David Petts, senior vice president for business mobility for Nokia, in an interview at the CTIA trade show here.

Petts said the set-up process will be simpler than previously available for other Nokia devices. Nokia device users will be able to set e-mail priorities, receive alerts for meeting conflicts and obtain a global address list application to search for colleagues using the same e-mail server.

There will be no added cost to download the client.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
