South African Nokia Asha users can now send and receive office e-mails from the comfort of their mobile phones.
This follows the introduction of the Mail for Exchange app in the Nokia Store.
The new app, which is compatible with the Nokia Asha 311, 310, 309 and 308, allows users to sync their email, calendar and contacts data with Microsoft Exchange 2003, 2007, 2010 Servers and Microsoft Office 365 Mobility Online Service.
“The introduction of the new app makes your Nokia Asha 311, 310, 309 & 308 ready for business. It will enable users to take their office wherever they go, enhancing their overall mobile experience for work,” said Patrick Henchie, Senior Manager of Product Marketing: South & East Africa.
To give users a full office experience, Nokia has also introduced further apps, Editori text and sheet, which allow users to view and edit Microsoft Word and Excel documents on the go.
This is expected to add huge flexibility for mobile phones to modify, save and share documents or spreadsheets for quick review right from your Nokia Asha phone.
The Editori text and sheet also comes with other great features including rich text formatting; bold, italic, colors and underline to keep track of the changes made. The app recognizes hyperlinks, can enable users to view pictures, tables and save the document to memory card immediately.
“Nokia is committed to enhancing the user experience by delivering more capabilities on the Asha smartphone range,” added Henchie. “Last month, Nokia introduced LINE messaging app in the Nokia store and we continue to build the app ecosystem for Asha, which we introduced in 2011 to connect the next billion people in emerging markets.”
