The first official screenshots of Windows Live Messenger for iPhone have been made public courtesy of Neowin. According to the technology news site, Microsoft will roll out the application this summer. In June, Redmond-based software giant Microsoft will roll out the first public Beta bits of Windows Live Messenger for iPhone to the public. Next month, in May, a limited private Beta will take place, sources inside Microsoft told Neowin.

Windows Live Messenger for iPhone will be released alongside the rest of Windows Live Wave 4, the next major release of Windows Live which was recently announced by Microsoft.

As Microsoft’s Corporate Vice President of Windows Live Chris Jones explained, Wave 4 will offer the following:
The Windows Live Messenger experience will become richer than ever before. Windows Live Messenger will allow you to stay connected with all your friends, no matter what network they’re on.
Hotmail will help you get things done faster and more efficiently.
Windows Live Essentials will complete your Windows experience by offering you tools to organize your photos, make movies, stay in touch with the people you care about.

A great deal of focus has been placed on security and privacy with Wave 4. Chris Jones explains: “We’ve designed Messenger, Hotmail, and Essentials to work across the devices you use every day – the PC, the phone, and the browser. We’ll continue to focus deeply on security and privacy, so you get notified about suspicious or unusual activity, you get extra security on your PC, and you stay in control of how your data is shared with others.

If you’re currently using Windows XP, don’t get too excited about Windows Live Wave 4 because it will not provide support for XP.

“Windows XP is nearly 10 years old and simply doesn’t provide the same level of platform support for graphics, and we recognized early in our work on Wave 4 that we could do much more in our software on a modern graphics platform. As a result our new version of Essentials will require the new graphics platform and controls that are only available on Windows 7 or Windows Vista and therefore will only run on these platforms,” explained Chris Jones.
