Lotus Notes Support for Nokia S60 Devices Expands Market Opportunity
Espoo, Finland and Armonk, NY, USA - Nokia and IBM today announced IBM Lotus Notes support for a number of Nokia's S60-based mobile phones, meaning that millions of Lotus Notes users are now able to access email with their Nokia devices. This also represents a significant market opportunity for IBM Lotus Notes -- which has 140 million licensed users -- with many Nokia customers now able to purchase Lotus Notes and access its collaboration capabilities on the go.
With this announcement, more than 80 million people - the number of Nokia S60 3rd Edition devices shipped globally* - can connect to corporate email accounts via Lotus Domino Server software known as Lotus Notes Traveler. This software provides real time access to email, calendar, address book, journal and to-do list data and will be available for Nokia devices in December 2008.
According to IBM's Institute for Business Value, this year, for the first time, more people in the world will have a mobile device than a land-line telephone. IBM 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. In fact, 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."
