As promised by the Live Mesh team, today Microsoft opened it's Live Mesh service to the masses and removed the limitation on what countries you were able to sign up to use Live Mesh. The previous limitation was in place so Microsoft could complete its testing with various language and locale settings. Furthermore, the Live Mesh team rolled out an update which brings the service and PC software to Beta with significant new features, and includes the first technology previews of the promised Mac and Windows Mobile clients. Unfortunately, both Betas, the Mac and Windows Mobile client are restricted to certain countries for now as well as Microsoft is rolling out, during an initial testing phase, a limited amount of clients only.

As explained by the Live Mesh team "these are both significant new software investments for us, we're going to only provide them on a limited basis for now (and mobile is restricted to only US or UK to start.) If you get a message saying that we're at full capacity for these clients, keep an eye on the blog here. We'll post updates as we increase availability over the coming months".

If you had no luck to get one of the Windows Mobile client, you can browse from your Windows Mobile or WAP-enabled phone which gives you a lightweight way to view Mesh content (and, on phones that support it, upload new files).

In addition to Mac and Windows Mobile support, Live Mesh now sports a whole bunch of new features including:

  • P2P sync which can be managed from your computer
  •  You can drag and drop files to folders on your Live Desktop
  • You can select multiple files for upload or download

Any many, many more. Check out the Live Mesh Blog for more information.

Cheers ~ Arne
