Hotmail Gains ActiveSync for Mobile, But Android isn’t on the List

Posted by at 2:56 pm on August 30, 2010

Microsoft has begun enabling Exchange ActiveSync support for Hotmail users, reports say. The technology should allow push synchronization with a number of  mobile  devices.  The list includes the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Windows Phone 7, Windows Mobile 6.x devices, as well as Nokia E-, S- and N-series phones.

Absent in the compatibility list is Android, might it may be possible to toggle ActiveSync on for some Android 2.2 devices using the default e-mail app or Touchdown. The v2.1 firmware isn’t supported due to “known client issues,” according to Microsoft. Official Android compatibility is only expected “in the coming months,” once testing is finished.

Microsoft has provided a  setup guide to facilitate configuring e-mail clients.
