We are continuing our work with Nokia and I’m pleased to announce that today we are making available the Windows Live services to an additional seven different countries for Nokia phone customers. The Windows Live for Nokia service provides Hotmail, Messenger, Live Contacts and Spaces access to our customers that use the popular S60 mobile phone range. The application is downloaded and installed on the device and once you sign in with your Live ID you have full access to your email, messenger, contacts, etc.
The service was first announced last August and was initially available in 11 different markets and on 5 different mobile S60 handsets. Last year we added an additional 15 new markets while adding a few new handsets. Now today we are adding an additional 7 different markets for a total of 33. On the device side we now support 16 different S60 handset models. As before, the service initially will be a free trial and at some stage we will turn on billing, dates pending.
The new markets being announced today are Hungary, Iceland, India, Israel, Poland, Romania and the USA. This add to the existing list of Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Indonesia, Ireland, Malaysia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Philippines, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Sweden, Thailand, UAE, UK and Vietnam
