Microsoft’s annual Worldwide Partnership Conference is in full swing in our nation’s capital and Andy Lees, Microsoft’s Sr. VP of Mobile Communications, will formally announce Windows Phone Live today. The free service for any Windows Phone 7 user is an online portal that lets you remotely wipe a WP7 device should it ever be lost or stolen. Content from your mobile device or PC will also be synced and viewable from the service including photos, OneNote files, contacts and calendars. Sounds a lot like KIN, doesn’t it? You’ll even get 25GB of room on SkyDrive.
