MSN Mobile gets a face-lift, looks slick

For those of you who still like the idea of "web portals" (which to us seems as dated as an AOL CD) you'll be pleased to know that Microsoft has taken the time to give a nice overhaul to their MSN Mobile website.

The new homepage now matches the recently re-launched desktop version, features ease of access to email, more minimalist graphics and faster downloads.

Overall, we have to give credit as it does look quite nice and were we not to rely on our native Bing, MSN Messenger or ability to push Hotmail, we suppose this would be our next best thing. (Speaking of Hotmail, login to the new revamped "preview" edition here)

Navigate to on your device to check it out, as it should be live. Unfortunately for us, at this time on our TP2/eXpo we were still with the old layout. Guess these things take time.

  • Not surprising after what they did to Bing. Every search has a "More at MSN"...
  • Very nice update..also much snappier.
  • The new homepage looks nice but I feel the Old was much more professional looking.I use it for weather,news, movies, travel.
  • Did I read correctly that we'll finally be able to sync the Windows Live calendar OTA with our Pocket Outlook?! Might be time to go back to Windows Live from Gmail!
