This is looking very nice. Great to hear it's getting an update!
Here at work I can log onto my Hotmail but not interact with it...ie cannot open emails as they come in...
Gutted that I cant change my hotmail account to Outlook without having to re-install everything on my Lumia 900 win7 phone!! :(
Great update thought, love the style, very win8 style, just wish I could swap my account name to the new one.
p.s. did Pentagram design help make this too? would be great to have an interview with their design team on win8 design
