Microsoft has made its Windows Live client available for Nokia S60 smartphone users. Earlier we saw the Redmond giant announcing the same client for the BlackBerry platform, and now they’re bringing the same offering to Nokia’s smartphone platform, to provide S60 users with quick access to such Microsoft’s services as Hotmail, MSN instant messaging, Windows Live Spaces and Live Search.
“Official” Espoo and Redmond never been so close, despite the fact Nokia competes with Microsoft in mobile OS arena. However, Nokia is using Microsoft’s DRM for its music store, pushes Silverlight to its smartphones, and Windows Live client has a dedicated page on Nokia’s website.
The Windows Live client is available from Download! application (Internet -> Mail and IM) in select countries — including U.S., Hungary, Iceland, India, Israel, Poland, Romania and the USA.
