    Espoo, Finland - Mall of America, the United States' largest retail and entertainment complex, is switching from BlackBerry to the Nokia Lumia 920 because of the tight integration with Microsoft services and built-in Microsoft Office suite, offering Mall of America management team members greater productivity and flexibility in a very dynamic workplace. The Nokia Lumia 920 is built on the Microsoft Windows Phone 8 platform, which allows out-of-the-box access to Microsoft apps and services, including Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and SkyDrive, all brought to life on the smartphone's large PureMotion HD+ super sensitive touch screen. These apps integrate with the mall's existing Microsoft services, enabling Mall of America management team members to review and edit Outlook emails and Microsoft Office documents on their smartphones, wherever they happen to be.

    "Switching to the Nokia Lumia 920 has increased productivity for key team members. The combination of a great smartphone with built-in Microsoft Office suite enables our team to work collaboratively, and SkyDrive ensures we can back up and access our work, wherever we are and whenever we want," says Janette Smrcka, I.T. Director at Mall of America.

    "With more than 400 events every year, from music acts to celebrity book signings, the ability to capture, edit and share images from the Nokia Lumia 920's PureView camera enables team members to provide instant high-quality imagery and real time updates to social media fans and our business customers. When you combine this with all of the Windows Phone 8 platform's business capabilities, at a price we can afford, we've got a device we're really proud to use," concludes Janette.

    The Nokia Lumia 920's Live Tiles offer intelligent, interactive apps, showing the latest emails, news, documents and people updates as they happen, so that at one touch of a tile, management team members can reach key people, stay organized and collaborate with colleagues. The People Hub in Windows Phone 8 further helps organize teams, allowing staff to set-up groups, work together innovatively, and stay in touch with co-workers across text, Facebook, Twitter, instant messaging and email.

    "Mall of America is a great example of how all the business features of the Nokia Lumia 920, combined with its social capabilities, can make a great work device," said Stephanie Mosticchio, enterprise sales manager for North America at Nokia. "The Windows Phone 8 platform has meant the company's employees have been able to transition quickly, due to its built-in and familiar Microsoft Outlook and Office Mobile applications. From the intuitive integration with Microsoft services, to Live Tiles and People Hub making it easy to stay close to what matters, all wrapped in the beautiful polycarbonate body of the Nokia Lumia 920, it offers everything a mobile workforce could ask for."

    Nokia for Business
    With the Nokia Lumia range, Nokia offers business users the ability to work on their mobile as they would on their PC. With the Windows Phone 8 platform, Microsoft Office and Outlook are built in allowing employees to create and edit PowerPoint, Excel and Word documents wherever they are whilst seamlessly syncing their files and email. Combined with a design that stands out, business level security as standard, and a range of Qi standard wireless charging solutions, the Nokia Lumia is the most innovative smartphone for businesses.

    And Microsoft wants to give this advantage away by releasing office on ios and android.
    I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

    Doesn't look like that'll be happening anytime soon. Here's a quote from an analyst that covers MSFT shortly after meeting with MSFT management last week.

    "While not explicitly stated in our meetings, wed be shocked if there is native Office on the iPad / Android any time soon."

    Grats Nokia/Microsoft. I'm surprised more corps. aren't jumping on the Office integration. Personally, I love it (and will need more of it in the coming months). Shame the press release doesn't give a hard number for how many they're buying.

    When did this meeting take place because it contradicts what some Microsoft watchers are claiming.

    If we did see Office on other platforms (which is likely as the Office division has a lot of clout) then it'll be neutered unless you subscribe to Office 365 unlike ours.
