Microsoft plans Office tie-up with Nokia
Microsoft Corp <MSFT.O> said it will announce an alliance with Nokia <NOK1V.HE> on Wednesday, likely unveiling plans to make the software company's Office suite of applications available on devices made by the world's top cellphone manufacturer. Microsoft, the world's largest software firm, is set to bring out the latest version of its Office product next year, including an online version that will allow users to access the popular Word, Excel and PowerPoint programs over the Internet. The move counters the recent entrance of Google Inc <GOOG.O> into the software market, offering free versions of word processing, calendar and e-mail applications online.
