WindowsLivePreview.com goes live: ?What?s New in Messenger?

We just went to write up a story on www.windowslivepreview.com, which was rumored to go live tomorrow (April 28th), but looky here, it?s live already:


(we?ve been hitting some error pages, looks like the site isn?t quite ready for prime time, so if you can?t reach it, you should be able to soon)

So far, it looks like only Messenger is previewed, although My Microsoft Life is reporting that another website, www.hotmailpreview.com, will have more info about, umm, Hotmail, but it doesn?t appear to be available quite yet. A third site, www.messengerpreview.com, isn?t up yet, either.

The sites are registered to Microsoft PR firm Waggener Edstrom, who obviously are going to be busy promoting Windows Live and Wave 4 in the coming weeks and months.

Looks like lots of information in the new site, including what appears to be a push by Microsoft to promote Windows Live?s privacy features:


and a feature by feature comparison of Windows Live Messenger with other IM services, including:

  • <LI sab="732">Real time photo and video sharing <LI sab="733">Hi def video chat <LI sab="734">video messages <LI sab="735">real time gaming <LI sab="736">social networks aggregation <LI sab="737">integration with email inbox <LI sab="738">IM to SMS integration <LI sab="739">iPhone, Blackberry, Windows Phone, and Nokia apps
  • Partner APIs

Looks like we?re just about ready to really talk about Windows Live Wave 4, exciting!
