Over the last few months we’ve seen support for Microsoft Exchange grow further and further, being adopted on more and more smartphones and being extended to new desktop applications. We’ve talked about a few of these new releases on our mail2web.com Blog.
With the release of OS X Snow Leopard by Apple, they also added Exchange support within Mail, Address Book and iCal by taking advantage of EWS. This allows Mac users to get full email, contact, calendar and even task synchronization from their Hosted Exchange account to the native applications on their Mac. This gives Mac users multiple options for handing their Microsoft Exchange Account.
We’ve also seen the launch of a number of new Google Android devices in North America and Europe. The HTC Android devices in particular include support for Exchange ActiveSync. Even better, they can AutoDiscover your account settings, making it easy to get set up in mere seconds.
The Palm Pre was also launched and also comes with support for Exchange. And even though it doesn’t use AutoDiscover, is also fairly easy to get set up.
How far will the Exchange revolution extend? And what new devices are you looking forward to? We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments.
