We are all familiar with the Microsoft Kin series, and the epic failure that it turned out to be. But one thing it did introduce, that was both brilliant and innovative, was the Kin Studio web-backup service. It was essentially a cloud service that allowed the user to backup pictures, music and various other data to a online cloud service. Unfortunately this great feature was muddled in with the horrendous Kin One and Two devices, so it was pretty much lost in the shuffle. Microsoft hasnt given up on the cloud service yet though, and plans on using it with the Windows 7 phone series, which is great news for the future of Windows 7 mobile users.
Speaking with the Seattle Times, Microsoft’s Aaron Woodman said that the company has made “very, very small baby step with Windows Phone Live,” and added that it’s “definitely part of the road map to have enriched services that make the phone more meaningful, and the Web more meaningful.” Woodman also apparently suggested that those services would be one way Windows Phone can “continue to compete” with Android, but unfortunately didn’t get very specific about a rollout date for the upgrades.
