Nokia and Microsoft Alliance will show its stuff soon!

Nokia and Microsoft have been working together for a number of years now, and recently BusinessWeek had an opportunity to talk to Nokia’s Chief Executive Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo about their joint ventures. The interview focussed mainly on Nokia’s future in the US market, but touches on some other issues.

In the report, they speak of Microsoft assisting Nokia with mobile applications and business features. That might be a little redundant since the new OS Microsoft is working on does not have very much business features, but of course Microsoft has just released a new beta of Silverlight for Symbian, meaning the two OS’s may actually soon be able to run the same applications.

Kallasvuo made a specific point of mentioning however that was not just about running existing apps, but also co-creating new apps to run on the Symbian platform.

What do you think could come as a benefit from this alliance with the worlds leader in software, and the world’s largest phone manufacturer? Comment below and let us know your thoughts.
