Hotmail is on Fire

Marc Sanchez Jan 25, 2012

And a bunch of other platforms like Android and the iPhone operating system, according to Microsoft. Hotmail, the crazy, old uncle who likes to start each sentence with, “when I was young, email was _____,” is still alive, kicking, and on a bunch of smartphones. Microsoft’s announcement goes on to say, “The Hotmail team is happy to announce that our Kindle Fire application for Hotmail is now live in the Kindle store and ready for download for free.” OK, get ready for some heated puns…

Hotmail just got a whole lot hotter. Fire gets spiced up with Hotmail. Or if you’re not feeling the love, Hotmail throws lukewarm water on Fire.

But seriously, if you have a Hotmail account and a Fire, you now have access to all the functions, like folders and contacts, you’re used to.
