Nokia Launches Corporate E-mail System
By Rita Kushnir

Nokia, this week, announced its egalitarian new corporate e-mail system, the Nokia Business Center, which is designed to offer employees of all ranks an affordable way to send and receive e-mail from their mobile phones. Currently, only 10 million of the world's 650 million corporate e-mail accounts are accessed from mobile devices, mostly by high-ranking company officials or salespeople. Nokia vows to change that and give all employees access.

Nokia Business Center comes in two versions: standard and professional. The standard client allows the user to write, read and delete e-mail, work offline and manage local folders. It includes support for English, French, German, Spanish and Italian languages. The professional client version, in addition to all features of the standard, offers a graphical e-mail experience similar to that provided by Microsoft Outlook. It also includes support for handling meeting requests, sorted views, full attachment support and corporate directory access. When a company purchases a Nokia Business Center server license, the standard version of the software is free. Each server license covers 400 people and retails for $2,218. The professional version requires an additional one-time per-user fee.
