It would appear that Microsoft is planning something new for their Windows Phone platform for 2012, according to a recent job listing for Microsoft, it looks like the company may bring some sort of backup and restore service to Windows Phone devices.
Come join the Windows Phone Backup, Migrate, and Restore team. Our goal is to ensure that no matter if someone loses their phone, drops their phone in a lake, buys a new windows phone, or just has their toddler wipe their phone by entering the wrong PIN over and over, a user can quickly and seamlessly get their phone back to a good state. The features we are producing will be new for the next version of Windows Phone and will help ensure Microsoft stays ahead of the competition when it comes to disaster recovery. Come be a part of defining this area.
It is possible that Microsoft could use their existing Skydrive feature to bring backup and restore to Windows Phone smartphones, and the service could possibly launch with the next version of Windows Phone. Have a look at our Nokia Lumia 800 review to see what we thought of Nokia’s first Windows Phone device.
