Windows Phone 7 Lync Client v1.0

Michael W. Olesen and Mikkel Bach Nielsen, two Microsoft developers have developed a Lync Client for Windows Phone 7.

The solution consists of a:

1. WP7 application where you can:
– Perform normal chat, presence management, note editing etc.
– Manage contacts, groups etc in Lync.
– View contacts’ calendars.
– Search contacts in AD.
– Manage multiple profiles – ideal for ie. Consultants and others who could connect to multiple locations. Some of you who notice that we store credentials on the phone (AES enctrypted)…. The server can set a policy preventing this on the devices, and the devices honor that.

2. A server bundle consisting of:
– Backend services facilitating Lync integration via UCMA 3.0.
– Backend services facilitating contact calendar integration via managed EWS.
– Gateway service exposing all functionality to backend as REST services – called from WP7 app.

The WP7 Lync Client will be made available for free on the Windows Phone Marketplace soon.
