    Microsoft Apps for Nokia Belle
    Good news for Microsoft Office addicts with Nokia Belle smartphones. Just before the Mobile World Congress, the Finnish company released the first instalment of productivity apps from Microsoft. Christened Microsoft Apps, these are available for free, bringing six home screens, new widgets and more, including:

        Microsoft OneNote – those of you preferring the Redmond giant’s note-taking solution will be glad to know they’re now able to bring their notes with them at all times.
        Microsoft Document Connection – from where you get a single view to all documents in your device, attached in your emails and in SharePoint.
        Microsoft Lync 2010 Mobile – IM/group chat client.
        Microsoft PowerPoint Broadcast – allows you to share PowerPoint presentations from your PC via your phone. You can also combine these with Lync audio messages.

    And this is just a start, with Nokia promising even “more exciting business news” on the next instalment of Microsoft Apps. For the first time ever, Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint will be made available as native applications in a non Windows-based smartphone.

    Anyway, Microsoft Apps is available in 48 different languages, and you can get it as a firmware update to your phone, presuming it’s one of the following models: Nokia E7, Nokia C7, Nokia C6-01, Nokia X7, Nokia Oro, Nokia 700, Nokia 701 and Nokia 603. Soon it will also be released for the Nokia N8, Nokia E6 and Nokia 500…
