Microsoft-Nokia Deal

Microsoft and Nokia have struck a deal in which Nokia will use Office Mobile applications on its Symbian open source mobile phone platform.

Microsoft will be developing its Office Mobile solution for a non-Windows platform, and that represents a new first for Microsoft, according to Stephen Elop, president of Microsoft's Business Division.

Is this deal another sign that Windows is becoming less of a profit center for Microsoft? Why did the Office application sell, but not Windows Mobile with it? Answers welcome at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
