The mobile industry just received a shot of steadiness, or at least it appears that way with yesterday's announcement of the Symbian/Microsoft partnership.

Under the terms of the agreement, Symbian, makers of mobile operating environment Symbian OS, will be able to access a number of mobile solutions offered by the Redmond giant. This will be accomplished through the use of Microsoft's Exchange Server ActiveSync.

The agreement will allow Symbian OS-equipped phones to feature capabilities for "email, calendar, contacts and other personal information management data supported by Microsoft Exchange Server 2003."

Marit Doving, executive vice president for Symbian marketing says, "With an installed base of more than 25 million Symbian OS phones and more than 14 m Symbian OS phones having shipped to more than 200 network operators in 2004, Symbian is the leading open standard operating system in 2.5 and 3G phones. Developing Microsoft's Exchange Server ActiveSync protocol plug-in for Symbian OS continues Symbian's drive to offer the broadest possible choice of email and PIM solutions. This will help all Symbian OS licensees meet the needs of the enterprise market"

Microsoft corporate vice president of the Exchange Server Product Group, Dave Thompson agrees by saying, "Symbian and Microsoft together are significantly expanding the number of customers who can directly access their corporate email and PIM data from wireless devices."

The agreement should also be able to improve Microsoft's mobile phone presence and perhaps increase Exchange Server ActiveSync sales.
