Nokia follows yellow-brick road, purchases OZ



Some interesting strategy coming out of Nokia lately: not long after announcing they’re changing their business mobility strategy, the company says they’re purchasing OZ Communications. Looks like a two-pronged service approach now: Exchange support on a vast number of Nokia handsets for the business folks and OZ for consumer e-mail and instant messaging. Now the question in my head is: what happens to the beta of Nokia Email that supports POP and IMAP? Might there be some client integration to add IM to that or does it just go away? If I only had a brain…

That Nokia email program is odd – Nokia’s servers download your stuff and relay it to you I think. Not a direct connect like I’d expect.


Yeah, Nokia has also gone with jQuery a few days ago in an attempt to encourage developers to write widgets for Nokia mobile phones…
