IBM upgrades Sametime client to work with Microsoft software

The company said that with Sametime 7.5 users will be able to launch real-time communication sessions from within Microsoft Office, Microsoft SharePoint, and Microsoft’s Outlook e-mail client. The company also announced support for RIM, Nokia and Windows Mobile devices.

We’ve had various Sametime clients within IBM for a few years now each with different amounts of functionality, but support for Nokia sounds interesting. That’s assuming my N70 comes back from hell. [via]
