Windows Live Hotmail, formly known as Windows Live Mail, is set to launch in the United States Monday, May 7, 2007.
The web-based email will finally step out of its beta stage and will be open for public release where beta testers will be sent a confirmation by way of e-mail thanking them for their service and support.
The new, updated service will "offer several enhancements over the current user interface and is built upon Microsoft's AJAX platform." Some of the enhancements include: right click menus, a paneled interface, and updated search bar. BetaNews says that the new User Interface (UI) is "very similar to that of Outlook, the company's desktop e-mail application." Its still unknown as to whether or not people will be able to register their accounts as live.com, but remember back in December of '06?
So far, Windows Live Hotmail has been released in Belgium, India and the Netherlands.
