Nokia PC Phone is an experimental service that gives you the ability to use your mobile phone from your web browser.
You can call, text, and manage contacts from your phone all through your PC!
The great thing about Nokia PC Phone is that you can use it to communicate with friends and family even though they don't have the Nokia PC Phone themselves. No one will be able to tell the difference because your calls and text messages are actually made from your own Nokia phone.
