Microsoft released a developer beta of the next Windows Phone update codename “Mango” last week. Mango brings a lot of cool new features to the Windows Phone platform like Facebook and Windows Live Messenger chat integrated in the Messaging hub, Internet Explorer 9 and a lot of other improvements.
One of the smaller improvements is the capability to use SharePoint 2010 without a UAG (Forefront Unified Access Gateway). This will alow you to use Hosted SharePoint products like the offering from Genotec.

The video doesn’t mention anything about sharepoint. Do we have to open up ports to the world for this to work without UAG? Will it be through VPN?
Not enough content here… Wish there was more information.
Either way, thanks for the heads up.
Yes SharePoint has to be reachable from the outside over a SSL port.
