Nokia and IBM have announced IBM Lotus Notes Traveler support for a number of Nokia's S60-based mobile phones. This will mean that millions of Lotus Notes users are now able to extend productivity to their Nokia devices, the companies said.

The announcement represents a significant market expansion for IBM Lotus Notes (140 million licensed users) since many Nokia customers now will be able to purchase Lotus Notes and access its collaboration capabilities on the move.

With this announcement, more than 80 million people (the number of Nokia S60 3rd Edition converged devices shipped globally) can connect to corporate email accounts via a Lotus Domino Server. These people will now be able to get real time access to email, calendar, address book, journal, and to-do list data with Lotus Notes Traveler, which will be available for S60 3rd Edition devices this December.

The ability to connect securely to business email is an example of Tomorrow at Work, an IBM initiative that examines a changing work environment and anticipates trends in technology, business, society and culture. This year, for the first time, more people in the world will have a mobile device than a landline telephone. IBM's institute for business value predicts one billion mobile Web users by 2011 and a significant shift in the way the majority of people will interact with the Web over the next decade. Mobile devices now outnumber television sets, credit cards, and personal computers.

"This is another strong affirmation of our business mobility vision, which is to establish partnerships with the world's leading enterprise vendors. This collaboration means nearly 90 percent of business email can be mobilized with Nokia devices, without needing to purchase additional servers, middleware or licenses. With the presence, position and technology that IBM have in the corporate email market, they are an essential partner for us in enterprise," says Soren Petersen, senior vice president, Nokia. "People need to be connected to their email, information and network when they are out of the office and that has to be done conveniently and on their terms. Lotus Notes Traveler for Nokia devices is a great example of that."

Kevin Cavanaugh, vice president of IBM Lotus Software adds, "We are excited about IBM's growing relationship with Nokia and what this does for the build-out of the mobile Web. We are literally freeing millions of people using the Symbian platform from having to rely on a desktop or laptop to access their mission critical corporate PIM data. Working with the market leader like Nokia is a natural fit for attaining IBM's goals of providing universal access to Lotus Notes and Domino - all for no additional charge for both of our companies' current customers and a new horizon in productivity for new customers."

This announcement is a major development in IBM's efforts to expand mobile support for the Lotus software portfolio. Other IBM Lotus technologies that can be mobilized for anytime anywhere work include Lotus Sametime for instant messaging and unified communications, Lotus Connections for enterprise social networking and Lotus Quickr for social content sharing.
