Introducing SkyDrive for iPhone and Windows Phone

I thought I'd post about the release of Skydrive for Windows Phone and iOS before going to bed. Skydrive is Microsoft free 25gb online storage. While deeply integrated into Windows Phone 7, there was no one place to manage Skydrive. The app was designed to help you manage your files on the go.

Skydrive for iOS works on the iPhone and iPad but is not optimized for the latter.

Microsoft fixes Exchange Server 2003 and Voicemail issues with new update.

This fix was already available in the U.S. for a while and it seems that Microsoft is now pushing it to Europe and Africa today as I just got the notification on my HTC Mozart.

Update 7.10.7740.16 fixes the following issues:

Email threads. Fixes an email issue related to Microsoft Exchange Server 2003. With this fix, when you reply to or forward a message, the original message is now included in your response.
Voicemail. Fixes a voicemail notification display issue that occurs on some European and Asian networks under certain conditions.
This update is available only in certain markets.
To update your Windows Phone, connect to your PC/Laptop where you have Zune installed and follow instructions on the screen.

Microsoft creates Windows Phone simulator for Android and iOS.

No, this is not just a launcher. In fact, it's not a launcher at all but a real Windows Phone simulator that Microsoft created using HTML so iPhone and Android users can play with and get a taste of Windows Phone 7. They can do that by using a mobile browser and pointing to this address: I ran the simulator on my Nexus One and it runs smoothly. Even the simulator is fun to use.
