Kin Studio: This Had Better Be a Part of Windows Phone 7 Eventually

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Windows Phone Software" @ 11:00 AM

If you haven't seen the Kin Studio in detail before, check out the video above - it will give you an overview of what the Kin Studio is, and what it does. When I saw the Kin Studio for the first time in November of 2009, it was easily the most exciting thing about the Kin to me, because it represented something completely unique in the market. Apple is particularly awful at the Web and Web services, and Kin Studio represented a move by Microsoft to leverage what they do best: software design and online services. The Kin Studio is a great partner to the Kin phones, and I dearly hope that Microsoft is working hard to leverage Kin Studio into the future Windows Phone 7 ecosystem.

Managing Your Photos, Videos, and Music Using the Zune Software

"The Zune desktop software isn't just a music manager for your computer - it will serve as the music manager for your Windows Phone 7 Series handset. Just connect your Windows Phone to your computer and Zune automatically detects your phone, The "Device" tab allows you to browse, manage, and delete music directly on your phone. All changes are instantly reflected on the handset's Zune hub. Take that, iTunes!"

This is old hat to any Zune owners out there, but if you've never used the Zune desktop software before and you're wondering what it will be like to manage your content and sync it to your phone, here's a brief video demonstrating exactly that. I can't tell you how excited I am to be able to use this! Here's one reason why: when I sync my Zune HD to my PC, I have a Sync Group defined in the Zune software that will automatically sync the last 90 days of photos. So I always have the most recent photos I've taken on my Zune HD, and I don't have to do anything to get that. With my HTC HD2? The photos are two months out of date already, because I have to export the photos from Picasa in a mobile-friendly resolution, then connect my HD2, and drag and drop the folders of photos over into the right directory on the phone. That process sucks. Bring on the Zune software sync - it's going to rock!
