Microsoft recently enabled active sync for all hotmail users. This means your android phone has full support for synching email, contacts and calendar items onto the phone with any @msn, @live or @hotmail account.
Here are the setup instructions for users running Android 4.2. These screenshots were taken from my Nexus 4.
Follow these steps to add a hotmail account to your android phone via Active Sync:
Open Settings and scroll down untill you see + Add Account
Click Corporate or Microsoft Exchange
|Enter your email address (email@example.com) and password and click Next|
|Enter the following input for the following fields:
Exchange Server: m.hotmail.com
|Change the settings to your liking. The defaults are fine for most people.|
Your hotmail account will now be created and ready for use.
