Microsoft Lync 2010:

“Microsoft Lync is the re-branded and updated version of Microsoft Office Communicator. It provides instant messaging and presence for the corporate environment. Lync is integrated into a number of other Microsoft products and is intended to be a general purpose communication service allowing for better collaboration and unified communications.”
“New in the updated application is support for rich presence. This allows a user to set a specific status message to give additional information about availability. Previously it was only possible to choose from a predefined list (Available, Busy, Away, etc.) In addition, it is now possible to add contacts from the corporate directory and add them into existing groups on the phone. This allows for easier contact management and avoids some of the fiddly set up that was needed in the earlier version of the product.”

Microsoft OneNote:

“The Microsoft OneNote application provides a mobile version of the desktop application. Microsoft describes OneNote as a rich note taking application, with support for embedded images and audio. Notes can be synced using Microsoft SkyDrive (an update in 2012 will deliver Sync via SharePoint).
The mobile application for Symbian allows the viewing and editing of notes, including the ability to add images and audio on the phone. There are some limitations, the viewing and layout of data from the desktop application will be streamlined for the mobile screen and entries which use Ink (hand written notes) are displayed as image files, but all key content is displayed and remains editable on the mobile device.”

Microsoft PowerPoint Broadcast:

“Microsoft PowerPoint Broadcast allows the viewing of ‘broadcast’ presentations on the mobile device. For example, this can be used to share and view a presentation during a conference call. Typically, on the phone, broadcasts are activated by following a web link sent via email.
On the back end, this can be done using the Microsoft service from within PowerPoint 2010 (Windows Live ID required), or from a SharePoint server via a unified access gateway.”

Microsoft Document Connection:

“Microsoft Document Connection gives easy access to Office files stored on your phone (local storage or email attachments), or on remote SharePoint servers (multiple SharePoint accounts are supported). The list of files can be filtered by date, type and person (by creator or email address). Specific documents can also be marked as favourites, making it easier to find regularly used files.
Tapping on a file will open it in Quickoffice. Later in 2012, Quickoffice will be replaced by the Word, Excel and PowerPoint applications currently being developed by Microsoft, which are due to be released next year.”

Microsoft Exchange Active Sync:

“Nokia’s Mail for Exchange is re-branded to Microsoft Exchange Active Sync, bringing it in line with Microsoft’s own naming convention.
A number of new features are also added in the updated version. The most noteworthy of these is the introduction of support for multiple Exchange accounts. This means it will be possible to use Exchange ActiveSync functionality for both business and personal use (e.g. Google, Hotmail). The update will also bring more powerful and better performing search functionality, making it easier to find email in your inbox.”
