  • Have they added the multiple sign on feature yet? Edit: Nope. Just tried it.
  • The download available at wl.windowsmobile.com says that it is for non-touch phones only. Went to https://www.windowscentral.com/e?link=https2F%2Fclick.linksynergy.co... (suggested by the blog), but new version is not there.
  • Thanks for that headsup on only for non touchscreen phones I guess we will just have to wait for further announcement as to touchscreen devices. Yikes!
  • There's a toushcreen version on Windows Marketplace, so if you can run it on your phone...
  • If anyone has it running, which 3rd party social nets are they including?
  • Still no OTA calendar sync. You would think that when google has contacts, calendar, and gmail syncing over exchange server, MS would get their act together. If I didn't have so much tied to Windows Live, I would have jumped ship already.
