Although it’s not a household name the way it used to be, Microsoft’s Hotmail does very well on both iOS and Android. The Microsoft Windows team blogged today that there are 12 million iPhone users who use hotmail and 3 million Android hotmail users.
The Windows Live team posted this announcement to their blog:
The Hotmail team is happy to announce that our Kindle Fire application for Hotmail is now live in the Kindle store and ready for download for free. The Hotmail Kindle app gives you several advantages over the native Kindle Fire mail application. Whereas the native Kindle application simply downloads your mail via POP3, with the new Hotmail app you can sync all your mail, contacts, folders, and subfolders via the more robust Exchange Active Sync protocol. Because the Kindle Fire uses a different implementation of Android, we needed to make some updates to our previous Hotmail app for Android to ensure it worked well. Now that we’ve finished the work and the app is ready, we’re excited to give customers a great Hotmail experience on the Kindle Fire
