Redmond-based software giant Microsoft has announced this week that its data synching service for Windows Mobile 6.0 powered devices, My Phone, has entered Beta testing phase. My Phone has entered Beta testing in the past as well, but this time there is a difference: this is a public beta testing, nut a limited beta test for selected users only.

“With today’s release, we’re opening the beta to all users -- no more waiting list or promotional codes! So you can tell your friends, family and colleagues with Windows Mobile phones to visit http://myphone.microsoft.com and start using My Phone today. We’ve heard from several of you who lost your phones about how My Phone saved the day. We love these stories! – and created a forum topic to capture them. Click here to share your story. Thanks again and we hope you enjoy using the My Phone service,” explained the My Phone team.

My Phone, which will debut later this year once Windows Mobile 6.5 powered devices will appear on the market, will provide similar functionality to the one found in Apple’s Mobile Me. This is to say My Phone is a means of synchronizing and backing your smartphone data in the Cloud; your data is uploaded and stored by the My Phone web age, so that you can have access to it no matter where you are. My Phone comes with support for all sorts of content: contact synching, calendar items, images, videos and music, tasks, text messages, documents, and so on. All the user has to do is install the My Phone app on his WinMo powered device – it doesn’t get any simpler than that.

“Thank you for being among the first users of the My Phone service,” adds the My Phone team. “Your feedback and participation in our Forum has been invaluable in guiding improvements to the service experience. We just completed upgrading the My Phone web portal. Over the next few weeks, we will be updating the companion software for your phone, at which time you will be prompted to download the updated software. The upgrade process is quick and easy – all your settings and data will be retained -- so we encourage you to upgrade when prompted to do so.”
