Microsoft MyPhone: Backup in the Clouds

Microsoft is joining the pack led by Apple and Nokia by introducing its own mobile backup service in the clouds; and I think its about time WinMo users get such service too.

Called, Microsoft MyPhone, the upcoming service will allow mobile phone users to backup content and valuable information in their phone to a secured website — it will synchronize contacts, calendar appointments, tasks, photos, videos, text messages, music, and documents between your phone and your My Phone web account.

If you have Windows Live installed on your phone, it will also synchronize your Windows Live contacts. There’s a recommended settings you download for your phone on the first instance you connect to My Phone. Contacts on your SIM card and some data on your external memory card will not be synchronized (since they are removable and some people tend to swap these cards around, synchronizing them could delete data). You can a free 200MB storage limit which can automatically sync everyday between 11PM to 5AM.

    Reggie, actually syncing anytime, anywhere wirelessly over the internet with a Winmo(pocket pc phone) is already available as far as I can remember since around late 1990s but it is to your pc over the internet. this time around it will hosted by microsoft and it will be online meaning you dont have to turn you pc at home on to sync. it might be a good thing.
