We've heard about Microsoft's expected Sky-services earlier already which Microsoft most likely plans to announce in full flavor during the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. However, one part of it, SkyBox, went partly live yesterday under its final product name as "Microsoft My Phone". Microsoft My Phone is a cloud service which syncs critical information (e.g., contacts, calendar appointments, tasks, text messages, photos, videos, etc) on a user's mobile phone to a password protected Web site. Once synchronized, people can 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.

Scott Rockfeld, Windows Mobile Director at Microsoft said about this in a public statement: "Microsoft's My Phone Web site went live prior to its scheduled debut. However, we are excited about the new Microsoft My Phone service, which will be available as a limited, invite-only beta. This is a significant milestone for Microsoft as it connects the phone to the PC and Web, making mobility a key pillar for the company's software+services strategy."

My Phone helps people to keep their information backed up if they lose or break their phones, transition information if they switch to new phones as well as access the same information from their phone or PC.

While the limited, invite-only Beta isn't yet launched it's expected Microsoft will give more information about Microsoft My Phone during this month's Mobile World Congress. Stay tuned for more information. In the meantime you can also check-out the Beta website to get more information about Microsoft's upcoming consumer cloud-service.

Cheers ~ Arne
