Earlier today Microsoft launched a preview of Outlook.com – billed as modern email designed for the next billion mailboxes.
The fresh, clean interface takes it’s cues from Metro style that you’re seeing across other Microsoft properties – but this is much more than a visual makeover. It’s connected to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google, and soon, Skype. It’s rich with photos, status updates and tweets. In short, it’s what a modern email client should be in the cloud era.
