The long wait for the iOS people is over. The Lync Mobile client for iPhone and iOS can now be downloaded from iTunes.
If you want to know what the difference between the MS Lync Mobile clients, or wants to know what your mobile support – then have a look at Microsofts Comparison table here.
The Lync Mobile client for Android can now be downloaded from marketplace.
The Lync Mobile client for Windows Phone 7 is now available at Microsoft marketplace for download.
Clients for iOS, Nokia and Android has been submitted on their respectively marketplace for aproval, so hopeful these users will get there client soon.
Also the push notification service is not working at the moment for WP7 – it seems like Microsoft needs to enable something on the push.lync.com domain. This means that you won’t get any IM’s when Lync Mobile is not open. Hopefully they get it fixed soon.
UPDATE: the push notification is working now.
Microsoft has released the new Lync mobile for the WP7.5 to marketplace.
The client has some prerequisites to the server environment, which includes the new mobility service and the November 2011 updates.
Microsoft has released CU4 for Lync Server 2010, which is required to get the new Lync Mobile to work when it’s released in December.

If you a looking for a Lync Mobile Client for Iphone like many others, you will have to wait awhile for it (or read the last update to the post )
The official announcement from Microsoft is that it will come in 2011!! Rumors say around June 2011.
If you can’t wait for that, there is a workaround for it by using an Iphone App called iDialog, which you can read about here and download it from the App Store.
The iDialog app has been made for OCS 2007 R2 and requires Communicator Web Access, and that little feature has been renamed to Lync Web App in Lync 2010. However the new Lync Web App doesn’t have the old browser based chat and presence like CWA has. LWA is only used for conferencing in Lync. The missing CWA chat in Lync should come in Service Pack 1 for Lync.
But Microsoft has a workaround for a CWA 2007 R2 together with Lync and below is a Microsoft deployment guide on how to install the CWA – also after Lync has been installed and the schema has been prepped with Lync 2010.
The guide covers these three areas:
1. Install the Communicator Mobile component on a “clean green field” Lync Server 2010 environment that has been prepped with the Communications Server 2007 R2 schema
2. Install the Communicator Mobile component on a “clean green field” Lync Server 2010 environment that has been prepped with the Lync Server 2010 schema
3. Install the Communicator Mobile component on a topology that has been upgraded from Communications Server 2007 R2 to Lync Server 2010

Update October 2011
While we are still waiting for the official app from Microsoft, a new alternativ has arrived which is XYNC. Read about it here
The CU4 update for Lync Server 2010 contains new components which are required to get the Lync Mobile client to work. There are no official information about these components yet and what’s need to be configured for on the servers.
The latest rumor about the release of the Lync Mobile Client for iOS and the others is very close to the December 9′th.
Microsoft has now released the iPhone and iPad client.
