Microsoft has recently branched out to the Blackberry mobile phones by making its Windows Mobile Live application available, but there have been several questions about how this free Blackberry application is better than Blackberry's own email system. We don't really know if we can consider that Microsoft has started sharing its applications with other companies, but for all we know, this is a start.It does not matter if you are a Windows Mobile device user or a Blackberry user because the bottom-line is that they have their own pros and cons. But the fact remains that Blackberry has a larger user database than Windows Mobile users. Therefore, you can assume that Microsoft has paid tribute to the old adage - "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em."Though this has provided the versatile Blackberry Torch with another application, people wonder how the Windows Mobile application is going to measure up to the already existing free Blackberry Torch applications.In other words, what's new?The Blackberry mobile phones are all about communication and the addition of one other application to check your mails and chat with people is going to improve the class of the cell phones. It is surprising though that RIM would create this application in competition with Blackberry's own messenger.The Windows Live Messenger application is part of the Windows Live bundle which essentially comes with the Windows Live Hotmail also. There are already several free browsers and several free IM clients in the Blackberry client, so why would people use Windows Live?The answer is quite simple - there are not many applications in the Blackberry App Store or the general market which allows you to check your mails in Hotmail or chat with people on WLM. Unless you have a Hotmail account, the application is going to be just another free Torch application on your Blackberry mobile phone. If you're a person who has to constantly juggle between MSN and Windows accounts for your personal or business use, the Windows Live application is perfect for you.The Windows Live bundle brings all the essential features of a mail browser and an instant messenger. For one, it allows you to create new mail messages and send them, while also providing users with the standalone "Reply" and "Forward" buttons. As Windows would have it, there is a specific feature that allows you to create a Hotmail inbox on the Blackberry. The mailbox has been crafted in a neat way so that it can fit the mobile screen - menus and everything.The Windows Live Messenger for the Blackberry Torch stands out from other instant messengers in the sense that the actual PC IM messenger and the client for the mobile device do not have significant differences - such is Microsoft's ability to reproduce the client on a smaller screen. Like any other IM client, it allows you to stay in touch with all your friends and contacts on your Windows Live account. Apart from displaying the online contacts, it lets you send instant messages and create chat sessions. Interestingly enough, the free Blackberry Torch Windows Live Messenger lets you send pictures and other files to different people from the mobile. The Windows Live Messenger, though not a complete standalone application can boast of a set of emoticons which stands unrivalled. Overall, the Windows Live Messenger for the free Blackberry Torch doesn't appeal to every user because it doesn't offer anything that the other IM clients already do.
