Live Mesh Offering Open Beta, Mac Client This Week

image The Windows Live Mesh team announced on Monday that Live Mesh will be going in to open Beta later this week, as well as finally offering a Mac and Windows Mobile client. This is great news for folks who operate in a multi-platform environment.

Back in April when we did the initial tech preview release of Live Mesh we emphasized a vision for how the offering would bring together your world of devices — a starting point to deliver on the data, devices, and people aspects of our vision. With this beta release we are making another significant step toward this goal. In particular with this Beta we are providing limited availability of our new Mac and Windows Mobile 6 clients — providing users with a wider range of devices that can participate in their mesh. Later this week as the beta rolls out, access to the Mac client will be provided from the device ring experience at Instructions for accessing the Windows Mobile client will be made available at this blog later in the week.
