David Law, the Director of Hotmail Product Management, has just posted over at the Inside Windows Live Blog about the Hotmail Kindle Fire App has just been released for the Kindle Fire.
We think it’s critical that our customers can use Hotmail from any device they choose. So, in addition to making Hotmail work great on devices running Windows, we’ll continue to invest in great experiences on other major device platforms.
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.
According to David the native Kindle Fire email application will let you grab your Hotmail via POP3 but this new app allows you to sync your mail, contacts, folders and sub-folders.
