Microsoft My Phone Beta open to the public

It looks like My Phone is available now to the public.

Microsoft My Phone syncs information between your mobile phone and the web, enabling you to:

  • Back up and restore your phone's information to a password-protected web site
  • Access and update your contacts and appointments through your web account
  • Share photos on your phone with family and friends

Try it out (You'll need a Windows Mobile device)

So I wrote a bit about this service last week for the book (Windows 7 Secrets) and will try and get something up on the site soon. My Phone is free, of course, but it pretty much requires that you have gotten data into the phone; there’s no way to use the web site to import contacts, calendar, or whatever from the desktop directly. That said, once it’s there, it’s pretty easy to managed. Overall, it’s not bad.

More soon.

Thanks to Zlatko Z. for the tip.
