We have known that Microsoft is releasing Lync Mobile client but now we have confirmation that the Lync Mobile client will be released for Apple iPad.
“When you deploy the Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Mobility Service, users can use supported iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Phone, or Nokia mobile devices to perform such activities as sending and receiving instant messages, viewing contacts, and viewing presence.
According to same download page the iPad app for Lync will include the below functionality:
- some Enterprise Voice features (Using Outside Voice)
- click to join a conference
- Call via Work
- single number reach
- voice mail
- missed calls
How does Lync Mobile do Outside Voice when iPad does not have CDMA/GSM Voice? It just gets Lync to call another mobile device! Pretty clever. (source: click here slide 10)
