Nokia cell phones could soon carry Microsoft Office software, under the terms of a new agreement between the two companies.

The New York Times reports that Microsoft is feeling the threat of new personal productivity suites from the likes of Google, and also acknowledges that users are relying more on the smart phones to perform previously PC-centric tasks.
The partnership is expected to be announced today, and is believed to extend only to Office, not to Microsoft's mobile operating system as well. Nokia uses the Symbian operating system.
