Windows Live Hotmail Push Email & Messenger For BlackBerry?

WindowslivelogoWell we have heard this promise before when it comes to the Windows Messenger. They promised us a native RIM IM client and it turns out that it was locked to only a few carriers and required you to pay a monthly fee. Hopefully this latest press release from RIM will change that story. RIM and Microsoft have tied together to bring tighter integration between Hotmail/Messenger and the BlackBerry. Just look at the promised features in the press release:

Windows Live Hotmail for BlackBerry will allow customers to:

  • Use BlackBerry ‘push’ technology for automatic message delivery and message synchronization so the customers’ online account is up-to-date with actions taken on their BlackBerry smartphone
  • Use a dedicated inbox for Windows Live Hotmail messages, which are automatically delivered to the smartphone. Customers can also choose to receive their Windows Live Hotmail messages, along with messages from other e-mail accounts, within a single inbox on their BlackBerry smartphone
  • Display HTML e-mail with the ability to view graphics, Web links, and contact photos in emails

Windows Live Messenger for BlackBerry will allow customers to:

  • Send instant messages and join group chats
  • Set status and see the presence of friends and colleagues within Windows Live Messenger or their contact cards
  • Customize status messages
  • Save conversations
  • Showcase their Display Picture (Avatar)
  • Send and receive pictures and files
  • Use more than 60 emoticons
