If you thought iPhone owners were way too cool to have a Windows Live Id or a Hotmail id, think again.

Microsoft released Windows Live Messenger for the iPhone less than a week back and today they’re reporting that the app has been downloaded a Million times.

Since one needs a Live id to  use the app the interesting part for me is that so many iPhone users have a Hotmail id. If you thought that having one isn’t cool, looks like you’re wrong. With all the new social features in Live Wave 4, Microsoft seems to have successfully wooed a lot of iPhone users.

With Bing being available as a search option and a million Windows Live Messenger users, Microsoft is getting a lot of love from the dark side.
