Today we're previewing the new Windows Live Messenger in Sao Paulo, so I stopped by Dharmesh Mehta's office to get you a look. This new Messenger has some things that we've been waiting for
. Fullscreen high definition video chat is here, and for $50 on each side you can now chat in HD. Look for more HD video chats in our Channel 9 Studio with people we couldn't otherwise talk with.
Messenger includes status updates synched across other networks, a coupled yet de-dup'd contact list, social highlights from your favorite people, and apps for Windows Phone and iPhone. Timeframe is in the coming months and will be available from download.live.com
