Microsoft Lync lands in the Windows Phone Marketplace

It was not long ago that Microsoft Lync was rumored to be hitting the Windows Phone Marketplace and those rumors were spot on as the application is now available. You can download the app here or directly on your Windows Phone.

The application was rumored to land on December 12 but hit a few hours early (at least in the EST time zone) to be available on December 11. 

Lync is designed to be a software program that offers businesses and enterprise customers a number of instant messaging, VOIP and conferencing features. The service is supposed to offer businesses more features than Skype, Microsoft's newly acquired VOIP messaging service that's geared more for consumers.

For those of you that are wondering what differences there will be in the various Lync Mobile versions, Netherlands consultant Sebastiaan Poels has created a comparison chart showing which features are supported on which operation system. Based on looking at the chart, it looks like Android users get the short end of the stick as that version is missing several features that will be a part of the other mobile clients.
