@handcrafted - it's coming.  Just bringing a level of parity from V1 to V2 is providing quite a challenge. We are pushing to get the Contacts and Activities apps out in the next 2 weeks, and then we can finally open up the beta.  After that is the portals, and all other apps, bit by bit.  This first phase is obviously taking us a lot longer than we would like.
