This new unified communications client connects directly with a company’s communications systems to streamline mobile collaboration. Owners of a number of Symbian-based Nokia Eseries smartphones can download the English version from Nokia’s Ovi Store, the place to get content on their Nokia devices.

Communicator Mobile enables people to see their colleagues’ availability and click to communicate with them using the best method, from instant messaging and e-mailing to texting and making a phone call.

The names and statuses of colleagues are embedded directly into the devices’ contacts application, enabling people to update their own presence, start and join instant messaging sessions, and begin calls directly from the contact card.

The application meets all of the requirements for the enterprise environment.

“We are keen to extend the collaborative benefits of Microsoft Communicator Mobile to Nokia devices. Communicator Mobile offers great potential for our large corporate customer base who have already deployed Communicator for desktop and now are looking to extend that existing infrastructure to mobile,” said Scott Petty director Vodafone Group Business Services.

This new application is available initially for Nokia E72 and Nokia E52. The companies plan to deliver Communicator Mobile for Nokia pre-installed on select Nokia smartphones in the future and plan to support additional devices, including the recently announced Nokia E5.
