Microsoft My Phone...not a phone
Of Microsoft's anticipated "Sky"-prefixed services: SkyMarket, SkyLine, and Skybox, which are all cloud-based services for Windows Mobile consumption, Skybox has made an advance appearance, but with the title Microsoft My Phone beta. The My Phone service, which is located at getskybox.com (link currently inactive), will be a cloud sync tool similar to the one used natively by Android with Google services or MobileMe on the iPhone. Contacts, calendar information, emails and texts, photos, music, and video can all be synched between the Windows Mobile 6+ device and the related Windows Live service. Microsoft will be premiering the free service at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain next week.
