Microsoft announces OneApp for emerging markets, includes Nokia smartphones

Microsoft announces OneApp for emerging markets, includes Nokia smartphones

I received an email yesterday from a Microsoft representative regarding their Unlimited Potential Group's announcement for a new mobile software application. The funny thing about the email was that it stated the OneApp application was designed for feature phones to access mobile apps like Facebook, Twitter, Windows Live Messenger, and more around the world (and especially in emerging markets). Looking at the list of compatible devices we see a lineup of some of Nokia's finest S60 smartphones, including the E71, N95, N85, and N96. I think someone may want to educate Microsoft on their competitors since these devices are much more than just feature phones and are high end Nseries and Eseries devices.
