Lync has been called Windows Live Messenger for enterprise, offering presence, messaging and phone call routing to employees no matter where they are. The software has been a quiet hit for Microsoft, and the app has already been shown for Windows Phone 7.
We have received a tip that Microsoft is currently testing the software internally, allowing full time employees to try the software out.
Hopefully this presages a release soon, with Microsoft promising more than 6 weeks ago that the software would be released for Windows Phone 7.5, iPhone and Android in the coming weeks.
Thanks Max for the tip.
