As each company would focus on its core competencies, the partnership would create the opportunity for rapid time to market execution. The ability to bring together key products, such as Nokia Maps, Office, Bing, Windows Live, and Xbox Live would also ensure immediate consumer engagement. Additionally, Nokia and Microsoft plan to work together to integrate key assets to create completely new service offerings, while at the same time extending those established products and services to new markets.
