Following the earlier information from Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Conference, Aaron Woodman just unveiled another new Windows Phone 7 feature on the Windows Phone Blog: Windows Phone Live. Basically, Windows Phone Live is a combination of existing Windows Phone 6.5 features like My Phone under a new name and home. With the introduction of Windows Phone 6.5, Microsoft introduced My Phone Premium which allows to remotely wipe a Windows Phone 6.5 smartphone or get it remotely ringing. Furthermore, Microsoft's Live Mesh, which was just a technical preview and will soon fade away, allowed users to synchronize their phone with the cloud.

Now Microsoft's new Windows Phone Live companion site will gives people a central place to see pictures they've published, view their Windows Live calendar and contacts, exchange OneNote files and access other information shared between the phone and the Web. The site will offer 25 GB of SkyDrive (which replaces Windows Live Mesh) and host the Find My Phone service (introduced with My Phone Premium), which allows people to find and manage a missing phone with map, ring, lock and erase capabilities right from your PC. However, unlike My Phone - which required a monthly subscription fee - Microsoft's new Windows Phone Live will be all for free.

The new Windows Phone Live website is already up and available but if you haven't added a Windows Phone 7 device to your Windows Live ID, you don't have anything to see at the moment.

Cheers ~ Arne
