New Microsoft Office Communicator Mobile 2007 R2 Update

Posted by Mino on August 5, 2009

The Windows Mobile version of Office Communicator 2007 R2 has just been updated. Communicator Mobile is strongly positioned as a desktop replacement application allowing OCS-enabled users to receive and place work calls over a mobile phone, exchange instant messages, and keep their presence indicators up-to-date while on the road.

This new version is available now and will be also compatible with the soon-to-be-released Windows Mobile 6.5, offering even richer integration to its users.

includes additions such as the Join Conference feature, where instead of dialing in and entering complicated conference entry codes, users can now join a meeting with the click of a button. This capability is available for all types of meetings that are scheduled using the new UC Conferencing capability in Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2.

 What’s new?

Communicator Mobile 2007 R2 update is far more than a standard QFE, with several new key features:

  • Click-to-join conferences!  No more pesky dial-in numbers or passcodes to remember!
  • A better Call via Work experience, where callbacks are automatically accepted.  Just click Call via Work, and place the phone to your ear.  After a quick call setup, you’ll be connected!
  • Support for new Windows Mobile Homescreens, on Windows Mobile 6.5 and higher devices.
  • The ability to call any number via Work, on Windows Mobile 6.5 and higher devices.  This means that you can even dial extensions from your mobile phone!
  • Detection for when the phone is roaming:  by default, Communicator does not sign in to roaming networks.
