08 September, 2011
Microsoft's productivity apps will become native for Symbian. We wonder if more are on the way.

Who cares, nobody really needs any app from Microsoft anymore!
Symbian is better than WP7 will be, and that only tell how very bad WP7 is!

Symbian was never dead to me. The lack of support and updates never meant the death of ANY OS to me. It's as if the media sees all Symbian devices will go kapoot by 2016. I hope another company would adopt Symbian once Nokia let go of it.

This is nice thing for Symbian, For the first time in 6 years I got a non-Symbian Device, makes me kinda sad though... But its time to move on and It's a android..
And maybe I'll buy another phone its gonna be a Nokia, my nokia phone never let me down since...

They are finally getting around to it now that Nokia has switched over to WindowsPhone?

android is the best..ice cream sandwich is coming..

Although Symbian will be a dead OS (for Nokia), many consumers will enjoy the updates. I'll say it again, even though Elop killed Symbian and MeeGo, he is PUSHING the compan forward despite his lack of interest in Symbian and MeeGo.

Well at least Nokia is benefiting at last from their Nokia+Microsoft Union this is nice for Symbian users but most of these apps was available but of course not from Microsoft officially thats the only difference and it will take months before fully using it

Wow... the way things are going S^3 is looking better and better. If they also bring WP7-style search and voice features to S^3 there'll be precious few reasons for me to switch to WP7!

... the WP7 app scene is still better than S^3 and it's not stuck on nHD, so I'd still switch. But S^3 has never looked better for Nokia's midrange smartphones. Nice one, MicroNok!

Excellent movement, this shows that the union between Microsoft and Nokia began and is just the beginning, it seems that great things come to Nokia and will be slowly regaining their rightful way .....

Thanks Microsoft and Nokia CHEEERS!
