, but it did introduce a few
interesting ideas -- namely, the Kin Studio
web-backup service. Now it looks like Microsoft may be set to revive at least some elements of the service on Windows Phone 7. 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.
