Microsoft Office Communicator gets upgrade

For you hard-core worker bees out there, Microsoft has updated Office Communicator Mobile 2007. The update comprises:

  • Joining conferences while on the go is much easier. No more dial-ins and entry codes. There's now one-button access to join.
  • Communicator won't log in to a roaming network, if you so choose, saving you money.
  • There is (er, will be) a plug-in for the Windows Mobile 6.5 home screen that shows your present status and number of current conversations.
  • Making calls is more streamlined. You can make a call with your work identity and dial extensions.
