Microsoft Lync 2010 app for Windows Phone 7 released

The much anticipated Microsoft Lync application for Windows Phone 7 has just been released. Here are the key features:

- View colleagues’ availability in real time and select the best way to communicate – initiating an instant message (IM), email, or a phone call.
- Connect to Lync conference calls with a single touch, without requiring long numeric passcodes or conference numbers.
- Make and receive calls using your Enterprise Voice (Lync ID) number only, so you can connect with others using a single, consistent identity.
- Lync 2010 for Windows Phone provides transport layer security (TLS) and perimeter/internal network protection without requiring a VPN, so your communications experience is safer no matter where you are or what network you use.

This application obviously requires that you have access to a copy of Microsoft Lync 2010 server or an Office 365 / Lync online account. You can grab directly from here.
