Microsoft slips My Phone mobile sync service

Microsoft My Phone Leak

Microsoft today inadvertently tipped its hand for Mobile World Congress by posting an introductory page for its My Phone mobile sync service (since pulled). The feature is the formal version of SkyBox and appears a close parallel to Apple's MobileMe meant for Windows Mobile 6 devices. It lets users sync up to 200MB of documents and media with a secure online space and lets owners published synced calendars, contacts and photos to the web.

The service is described as a beta in the premature site description and should at least initially be free to use, though the implication is that the final service may incur a fee. Whether or not My Phone will have interaction with computers and other platforms is unknown. [via Engadget]

    Just like

    Gee looks like like MobileMe and iPhone. And for those of you still thinking MM is c***, Apple has made some huge fixes on it. Works perfectly fine now.

    just tired

    Just tired of the lack of innovation. Where the h*** did "me too!" ever get anybody. Not that there shouldn't be similar uses of a particular idea or technology, but Microsoft, in particular, has for 25 years copied everyone else and passed it off as their own.

    Isn't "innovation" supposed to be THE cornerstone of a technology company?? Ridiculous.

    Mobile.Me works fine...

    is something nice to read.

    I hadn't read that in the blogs that Apple had gotten their cloud act together. I only heard about when it sucked and nothing synched. Day after day after day. I haven't seen anyone say in an article that Mobile.Me is working perfectly. I'd like to know if Apple is making any money off it.
