The Windows Live for Windows Mobile team blog drops the news, the Windows Live client (not to be confused with Live Search) has been updated and is available for everybody to download at The client already provided push sync for email and contacts; the new version adds:

  • View graphics, web links and contact photos in emails
  • Respond to emails with voice recordings
  • Upload photos to your Windows Live Spaces

It does appear that this is still the 'lite' version we mentioned back in April, which doesn't provide for MSN Messenger unless your carrier allows for it. According to MSDN, you'll want to uninstall the previous version from settings before installing the new version, FYI.

Apple's Mobile Me service has been having all sorts of issues, so go ahead and give this app an install and show those iPhone folks how push email (just Hotmail and Live mail) is supposed to work. :p
