You may have noticed that the Windows Live Mobile Wave 3 upgrade previously did not include any updates to Hotmail. As part of the new Windows Live Hotmail upgrade, one thing that went unnoticed was that together with it came the new Windows Live Hotmail Mobile beta release!
This new Hotmail Mobile beta currently runs side-to-side with the existing Hotmail Mobile. There hasn’t been any official announcement as yet, however we did notice several features new to this update:
- New header and theme that matches it more closely with the other Wave 3 Windows Live mobile services
- First page shows the Inbox straight away
- Search box for fast email searching
- New collapsible Email message header
- Emoticon support
- Views entire email message in one page (the original one breaks a long email message into several pages)
- Less images used for navigation, meaning less mobile download usage and saving cost
- No ads (unsure whether this will be in the final version)
- Simplified address: http://m.mail.live.com
The new version of Hotmail Mobile is looking great! To try it out visit http://m.mail.live.com on your mobile devices. If you’ve found any additional new features as part of this release, let us know in the comment below and tell us what you think!
