Nokia brings Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync to all S60 3rd Edition phones

Nokia brings Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync to all S60 3rd Edition phones
While Symbian has had an ActiveSync licence since 2005, Nokia's proprietary Mail for Exchange applicationwas previously reserved for select N and E series devices and Nokiaalso offered BlackBerry Connect for E series and other previous business-oriented devices.

Nokia's refusal to support BlackBerry Connect with its lovely E71 was a clear hint that Nokia had decided to change directions in relation to mobile email.

More of this strategy is now being revealed and every single NokiaS60 3rd Edition device can now run Mail for Exchange - including budgetmodels like the Nokia 3250 and the Nokia5320. This is unlikely to be enough to slay the BlackBerryjuggernaut, but it's a small step.

At least Nokia's aretypically pretty reliable (which was probably the whole reasonBlackBerry emerged victorious over Windows Mobile for mobile email inthe "first" round).
