Just today Nokia announced that Windows Live Hotmail is now available for the Nokia E71 through Nokia Messaging. Here's a few excerpts from the press release:
Nokia 5800 XpressMusic will enable the Nokia Messaging push email service in May
Espoo, Finland - Windows(TM) Live Hotmail®, one of the world's most popular web-based email solutions, is now available on Nokia Messaging, the service that enables people to access their personal email on their Nokia devices*. In May, Nokia Messaging will also be supported by the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, Nokia's first mass-market touchscreen device, adding to the tens of millions of popular Nokia devices in the hands of consumers that already support the service.
Nokia Messaging is currently free to download and set-up, and supports the world's most popular email accounts - Windows Live Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail, Gmail, AOL Mail - and accounts from thousands of other email providers. Easy to use, it enables access of up to 10 personal email accounts on a Nokia device, and through one single icon. Once Nokia Messaging is set-up, email accounts can be added to the service directly on the phone, as well as via the Nokia Messaging website (http://email.nokia.com).
I personally haven't tried out hotmail on my E71 because I haven't had a hotmail account for 2 years. I'm sure many of you will be excited to try this out. Let us know if you have any problems or shortfalls retrieving hotmail from your Nokia smartphone.
