Nokia has added Windows Live (Hotmail) email support to its own Nokia Messaging platform. Nokia Messaging is currently free to download and set up, and supports the world's most popular email accounts Windows Live Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail, Gmail, AOL Mail and accounts from thousands of other email providers. The application enables access of up to 10 personal email accounts on a Nokia device, and through one single icon.
"We've come to understand that a key barrier for mass email adoption is not the lack of features, but the usability. Nokia Messaging was designed for ease of use and mobility. While offering people a full feature set, Nokia Messaging still minimizes user actions and simplifies the complex, such as eliminating the need to know technical information. This reduces confusion and the amount of time taken to set up and start using the service on the phone. By prioritizing common actions and needs, we bring the most relevant and frequently used actions upfront," said Atif Hussein, Vice President, Products, Nokia Messaging.
With the addition of the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, Nokia Messaging will be available on 20 different device models worldwide, including the recently announced Nokia E75 which is the first device to come preloaded with Nokia Messaging, Nokia E71 - the world's slimmest qwerty device, Nokia E63, Nokia E66 and Nokia N79. More Nokia device models, including the Nokia E55, Nokia N97 and Nokia N86 8MP, will support Nokia Messaging when they begin shipping.
