Overview of Lync Mobile for Android
The second Lync mobile client has landed, this time for Android – Grab it from the market place here.
I’ve grabbed the app & loaded it up on a friends device to grab a few screenshots. If your curious you can have a look at my WP7 Lync overview (it has more screen shots & a network trace in).
