The official feature news came from Microsoft's IT professional-oriented TechEd conference. The phone's e-mail client is being upgraded to include support for threaded views of e-mail conversations, server-side e-mail searching, and the ability to pin e-mail folders and RSS feeds to the start screen for instant access. The company is bringing a Lync application to the platform, to enable corporate messaging. The Office Hub is also being expanded to connect to Office 365, in addition to the existing Windows Live SkyDrive and SharePoint support.
