Ok, this is just a really quick post.
I've been trying to get hotmail to work on the blackberry but it's just not as intuitive as Gmail and there's certainly no nice application available.
In the past, I've been able to browse to hotmail but it doesn't automatically recognize the blackberry as a mobile device. This is (I think) due to the way the blackberry browser registers itself.
Today, I stumbled upon this link and all my problems are gone.
It's still browser based, (no nice Gmail style app) but it's fast and works well enough.
I don't know if this is due to the recent hotmail/windows live updates or if it has been there all along and I didn't notice.
