Vodafone and Microsoft are collaborating on developing software to help users take their office with them while they travel. The agreement will see the companies co-operate so that applications available to Vodafone users, such as mobile e-mail, are able to work with Microsofts Windows Mobile operating system.
The deal follows Vodafones and Microsofts announcement of the European launch of Windows Mobile for Vodafone in February. Users will be able to access the mobile versions of applications such as Microsoft Outlook and Office through the new combined platform synchronised with the standard Windows system they have on their PCs. This will allow Vodafone customers to use their mobile phone to interact with PC functions.
