The Live Search functionality will be integrated with Nokia’s Mobile Search, and users of its N-series multimedia phones—or other Nokia handsets running on Series 60 software—will be able to access the service directly from their phones, according to Reuters.

Nokia already made a similar agreement with Yahoo, another leading search engine, Reuters reports.
