Oh Say Can UC? Windows Phone 7 Can

After talking with nearly a dozen Redmond Report readers about Microsoft Unified Communications, and the latest UC tool Lync, I came away impressed. Many of you saved a ton of dough and radically improved communication and collaboration through UC.

The Lync 2010 client, as of this week, now runs on Windows phones, letting callers use IM, audio conferencing and other high-end Lync Server 2010 features.

Microsoft is making the Lync smartphone experience fall in line with the specific smartphone interface. Lync on Windows Phone 7 devices uses Metro, while the iPhone version will look like any other iPhone app (and the same for Symbian and BlackBerry).

Do you like Lync? Tell us why at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
