Microsoft's 'My Phone' Web Site Goes Live
A new web site recently appeared that provides information about a product that Windows Mobile devices can use to sync data. According to the web site, Microsoft's My Phone service syncs information between your phone and the web. It lets users back up and restore their phone's information to a password-protected web site; lets them access and update their contacts and appointments through their web account; as well as lets them share photos on their phone with family and friends. According to the My Phone information page, the service will be free and users will have access to 200MB of storage. My Phone is an application that will need to be downloaded to the Windows Mobile device before users can create accounts. Microsoft responded to the web site's appearance, "Microsoft’s My Phone Web site went live prior to its scheduled debut. However, we are excited about the new Microsoft My Phone service, which will be available as a limited, invite-only beta. We will have more details about My Phone and the limited invite only beta at Mobile World Congress."
