Nokia has just released an official app for LinkedIn, the social network for ‘professionals’, for none other than the ageing Symbian platform.
It may be late to the party and on a platform that’s being phased out to pave the way for Nokia’s new alliance with Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7. Nonetheless, LinkedIn will still be a welcome addition to the Ovi Store.
That's likely to be especially the case for Nokia's army of business customers in Asia, as well as loyal enterprise enterprise community in Western Europe where it's not had the easiest of rides in the consumer market of late.
So what features can users expect from this app? Well for starters, you can search for people you may know or want to ‘connect’ with. Plus you can invite people to connect with you, exchange messages and update your status and view those posted by your connections.
Nokia has also added the ‘Reconnection’ feature that suggests to you people might know based on placed you’ve worked before. This is a great way to quickly get in touch with old colleagues.
That’s pretty much all. But what it does, it does pretty well. We think LinkedIn is great as an alternative to Facebook for staying connected with professional contacts. So if you’re looking to keep your work and personal life separate, it might be a good time to get onboard.
