Microsoft and Nokia are said to be working together to product a mobile version of Office for Nokia handsets.

CNet today reports that Microsoft is today expected to announce a partnership with the Finnish mobile phone maker that will see the two companies collaborate to bring a version of Microsoft office to Nokia devices.

Citing people familiar with the matter, WSJ also reports the same rumors of an announcement and goes on to say that the deal will be announced by Kai Oistamo, executive vice president for Nokia's devices unit, and Stephen Elop, president of Microsoft's business division, a group within the software company responsible for its Office business.

While neither Microsoft nor Nokia are talking turkey right now, the two companies have a press conference scheduled for 8 a.m. (PT) this morning. When word first got out about the event, many people thought Nokia was going to reveal a Windows Mobile device.

Watch this space, we'll update once Microsoft and Nokia make their announcement.

    Not really. Nokias are not very interesting handsets.

    I'd stick to my Sharp, thank you.

    I would imagine the number of people interested in editing Word documents on a teeny 2"~3" screen. I've tried it before and I was nauseous after 5 minutes. I never tried it again :D .
