Best Buy intros miQ mobile web backup

Best Buy stepped out of its usual role as retailer today by launching mIQ. Its service is designed to save smartphone data and will backup contacts, photos, videos and other data to 1GB of online space that can be accessed through the web or through a native phone app. Social network also plays a part as the app merges Facebook, Flickr, FriendFeed and Twitter updating.

The service will initially work with BlackBerry, Symbian S60 and Windows Mobile devices at first but will be free to use regardless of where the phone was bought. Best Buy Mobile shops themselves will set it up for free on newly purchased phones. The mIQ service should be active by October 12th.
