Windows_live_messenger_mobile_1Does anyone use MSN Messenger on a handheld anymore? Looks like it’s getting a facelift as Microsoft has Windows Live for Mobile in the works. Beta testers for Microsoft got the inside word that this was coming; I saw (and applied to participate in) a beta program for the platform, but now the word is out.

No details are readily available, but it’s a safe bet to expect IM functionality to be expanded well beyond simple messaging. According to the::unwired, "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! " Stay tuned!
