Nokia announce toned down version Microsoft Office for the Asha 501

Earlier this month, Microsoft acquired Nokia’s devices and services business and it seems we won’t have to wait long to see some kind of Microsoft flavor in Nokia’s Asha phones. Nokia has announced a toned down version of the Microsoft Office suite for the Asha 501 called My Pocket Office, which includes Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

Unlike the actual Microsoft Office apps, the My Pocket Office apps are basic in terms of functionality and only let you open and read documents that you’ve received in a mail or have uploaded onto the phone. All the three apps are differentiated by their color schemes. Sticking to their Microsoft Office lineage, Word sports a blue color scheme, Excel in green and PowerPoint in red.



Nokia has warned at the outset that the Office suite is in the beta phase and has its share of bugs, which it promises to iron out in the forthcoming updates. Hopefully, if this test is a success, Nokia will introduce the My Pocket Office apps on other Asha phones in the future.

For now, if you own an Asha 501, head over to the Ovi Store to download Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
