Microsoft announces hosted Exchange plans

If you're still looking for a mobile push e-mail solution and none of our suggestions has worked out, Microsoft itself could be coming to the rescue.

The head of Redmond's business division this morning announced a slew of new hosted services, a direct shot across the bow of Google's free apps, including hosted Exchange access for as little as $3 per user per month.

Full hosted Exchange, Sharepoint access and other goodies will cost $15 a month per user, which is still within reason, and there are referral incentives for business partners as well.

However: It's not quite spelled out whether this is a business-only deal, or if the average consumer will be able to get in on the goodies.
