Hotmail on your mobi

Mobile phones

The millions of Hotmail users may soon be able to access their e-mail on many of the world’s mobile courtesy of a deal between microsoft and Openwave. When Openwave’s V7 software ships later this year, phone manufacturers will be able to integrate MSN features such as Hotmail and MSN Messenger into the new mobiles.

Once users have logged into MSN services, they will instantly be able to see which of their friends and colleagues have their phones switched on via MSN Messenger, send and receive Hotmail email, or receive the latest sports and news via MSN alerts. Openwave claims that as many as seven of the top 10 phone manufacturers will deliver handsets featuring its V7 software this year.
