Despite what the Social Media Gurus tell you, having access to Email is the one feature that we must have on our mobile phones. Whenever we get a new phone, Email is still the first application that we set up and make sure that it works before we breath a sigh of relief and then go on to tinker with the other apps.
Nokia has recognised this fact and has announced that they will provide every South African Nokia Asha user with the Mail for Exchange app from 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.
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.
Mail for Exchange is yet another communication channel that Nokia is offering its users and follows closely on last month’s introduction of the LINE messaging app. Users with LINE app are able to send instant messages to friends or groups, and send photos and stickers to each other for free. It also enables users to send messages to friends from a PC to a mobile phone.
“Nokia is committed to enhancing the user experience by delivering more capabilities on the Asha smartphone range” concludes Patrick Henchie, Senior Manager of Product Marketing: South & East Africa
