Vodafone has taemed up with the computer company

Small business operators with the latest phones have been offered access to a new service from Vodafone.

The network, which counts the BlackBerry Storm among its exclusive handsets, has entered a new partnership with Microsoft that aims to improve communications for entrepreneurs.

Microsoft Online Services will, through Vodafone, deliver a number of specialised subscription-based services such as PC and web applications, email access, instant messaging and video conferencing.

Tom Craig, global business services director at Vodafone, said the move intended to address the ever changing needs of its small business clients in line with the latest technologies.

"By combining Vodafone's fixed and mobile communication services with Microsoft Online Services, we can provide all the elements of a fully hosted communications solution," he added.

The BlackBerry Storm is designed to be a more mainstream version of the Research In Motion handsets which have proven popular with many professionals - including the new president Barack Obama.
