Rumor had it that Microsoft would soon be releasing a version of Microsoft Lync for BlackBerry and other mobile platforms. This rumor was confirmed to be true when Microsoft of Australia confirmed a tweet by Australian tech enthusiast Gary Holden.

Microsoft Lync is an instant messaging client used with Microsoft Lync Server or Lync Online available with Microsoft Office 365 and Live@Edu. It is a replacement for Windows Messenger which was used with Microsoft Exchange Server. Although, unlike Windows Live Messenger, Microsoft Lync has an expanded feature set that is targeted toward corporate environments.
