Windows Phone 7 is one of the better mobile platforms for getting work done. Microsoft’s Exchange, SharePoint, and Office products are all integrated into Windows Phone 7 to some level.

I am going to bet that you know what the application “Outlook on the Desktop” does without me even having to describe a single byte of it. Congratulations; You win. Good day sir, ma’am.
You might be able to guess the app’s overall purpose, but I think you’ll be even more interested once you actually get the nitty-gritty of what it does. Let’s hit the big question first, though.
