Microsoft My Phone service to sync Windows Mobile with cloud
Microsoft is readying to announce My Phone during the Mobile World Congress, but a small glitch caused the web site hosting the service to go live prior to its scheduled debut.

The Microsoft My Phone service will be available as a limited, invite-only beta and connects the phone to the PC and Web, making mobility a key pillar for the companyís software+services strategy.

This new Microsoft cloud service syncs critical information (e.g., contacts, calendar appointments, tasks, text messages, photos, video, etc) on a userís mobile phone to a password protected Web site.

Once synchronized, people will be able to easily back-up and restore mobile phone data. My Phone provides an easy to use Web portal where people can access and manage content on the phone, and share that information with others.

Users can backup up to 200MB to the service, which currently runs only on mobile devices running Windows Mobile 6 and newer.
