Windows Phone 7 - SharePoint and Exchange

This post is going to be a bit negative.  For users looking for Enterprise features in the first version of Windows Phone 7, I think I have to recommend wait.


The Office Tab

  • No out of box support for SharePoint 2007
  • No Windows Authentication (NTLM) for SharePoint 2010 - you will need to activate Forms Based Authentication



  • Same issue as previous Windows Mobile 6.5 in requiring a personal certificate to connect to your corporate Exchange.  I understand this is more secure, but when you could easily integrate with Facebook, Gmail and Hotmail but can't connect to your corporate Exchange it is a bit silly


On a positive note, the WP7 browser is excellent and renders both SP2007 and SP2010 perfectly.
