Now the Windows Live Hotmail is available on Nokia Messaging, the service that enables people to access their personal email on their Nokia devices. In May, Nokia Messaging will also be supported by the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, Nokia’s first mass-market touchscreen device.

Nokia Messaging is currently free to download and set-up, and supports different email accounts – Windows Live Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail, Gmail, AOL Mail – and accounts from other email providers.

It enables access of up to 10 personal email accounts on a Nokia device, and through a single icon. Once Nokia Messaging is set-up, email accounts can be added to the service directly on the phone, as well as via the Nokia Messaging website.

“We’ve come to understand that a key barrier for mass email adoption is not the lack of features, but the usability,” says Atif Hussein, VP, Products, Nokia Messaging. “With Nokia Messaging on the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, we bring the service to people no matter what their input preference – touch, qwerty, or monoblock.”

With the addition of the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, Nokia Messaging will be available on 20 different device models worldwide, including the recently announced Nokia E75 which is the first device to come preloaded with Nokia Messaging, Nokia E71 – a slim qwerty device, Nokia E63, Nokia E66, and Nokia N79. 

More Nokia device models, including the Nokia E55, Nokia N97 and Nokia N86 8MP, will support Nokia Messaging when they begin shipping.

To begin using Windows Live Hotmail, existing users need to download the latest Nokia Messaging software. Instructions can be found at
