Oh, and Windows Live Messenger, too.
According to a recent BlackBerry press release…
Windows Live Hotmail for BlackBerry will allow customers to:
- Use BlackBerry ‘push’ technology for automatic message delivery and message synchronization so the customers’ online account is up-to-date with actions taken on their BlackBerry smartphone
- Use a dedicated inbox for Windows Live Hotmail messages, which are automatically delivered to the smartphone. Customers can also choose to receive their Windows Live Hotmail messages, along with messages from other e-mail accounts, within a single inbox on their BlackBerry smartphone
- Display HTML e-mail with the ability to view graphics, Web links, and contact photos in emails
Windows Live Messenger for BlackBerry will allow customers to:
- Send instant messages and join group chats
- Set status and see the presence of friends and colleagues within Windows Live Messenger or their contact cards
- Customize status messages
- Save conversations
- Showcase their Display Picture (Avatar)
- Send and receive pictures and files
- Use more than 60 emoticons
So there you have it. These new features will be available “beginning this summer,” which as we all know could mean as late as September.
