Windows Live Mobile Client

May 21st, 2006 by Zack Whittaker

Few days ago I spoke about the Live Mobile Client at the Windows Live Session in London. I couldn’t get any photos of it, however I tried my best to run off my memory what I saw, where and how it worked. Please note, it’s a concept so until I can get some screenies, this’ll have to do.

With it, you’ll be able to talk to other Messenger people whether they’re using a mobile device or a PC, you’ll be able to send and recieve nudges, instant messages as well as emoticons. The speeds between the PC and the Live Mobile Client are pretty fast – with about a second or two waiting times. You’ll be able to transfer files from and to your mobile device, including recording a voice clip using your device microphone and send pictures with your device camera.

With the Live Mobile Client (not the final name by the way, we’ll keep you posted on it), you’ll be able to click on a contact with your devices buttons, and check out their contact card and Live Contacts details – so you’ll be able to check out whether they’ve updated their blog and also pick up their contact details from your handset. You’ll be able to subscribe to RSS feeds and view the latest updated feed, as well as being able to access your Space and email via Windows Live Mail (Mobile). It’s really cool from what Phil showed us, and is expected only to run on Windows Mobile 5 devices, and we should be able to see it arriving in beta within the next few weeks 🙂

    It IS in closed beta and you cannot see it on your Connect Account because you were not invited. But there have been a lot of delays the new build is now nearly a month late. So it doesn’t really matter if you have the old build or not cause it’s not working right now.

    Can anyone tell me if this new client will allow send ink’d messages. I mean, if the Windows (PC) client permits sending ink messages, shouldn’t it be wiser (and more comfortable) to allow PPCs do it aswell?

  6. World of Warcraft Gold Says:

    No, “ink’d” messages have not yet been implemented. It looks like they are trying to make it pretty much the same as the PC version so I guess we’ll see when they make the software public.

    “It’s on Connect – it’ll be out and about in the coming months. The image in the article was a *concept* of what I could remember it looking like when I saw it – difficult to get an actual image when your phone camera is a VGA 640×480 camera… ”

    PLEEEZE! Ever hear of screen capture apps? If any of you really have the beta running on your phone and don’t know how to get a screen capture… you are full of shit.
