Nokia announced they've licensed the ActiveSync protocol for synchronization from Microsoft.  This move will put future Nokia devices right next to the most popular business application on the planet, as ActiveSync is an integral component of Microsoft's Exchange Server.  While the Nokia PC Suite will continue to support the open OMA standard for data synchronization, the addition of ActiveSync will certainly put Nokia's Series 60 and Series 80 handsets at the top of corporate IT recommended device lists.
