Put Office onto a Nokia


Long term
rivals Nokia and Microsoft have buried the hatchet to stick Redmond's Office software on Nokia mobiles.

Microsoft’s lucrative Office line faces an emerging competitive threat from free Web-based word processing, spreadsheet and other software, especially from Google. Punters are also using smartphones to do tasks that once could be done only on personal computers.
