Windows Phone 7 Mango SkyDrive Cloud syncing features detailed

The Windows Live Team has just posted more details about the new Skydrive integration in Windows Phone 7 Mango. There isn’t really anything new that we haven’t heard of before but it’s definitely nice to see Microsoft talking about the platform’s Cloud features a day after Apple made a big fuzz about its new iCloud service. As we already knew Mango will give users the ability to finally upload videos to their Skydrive (and also share them by mail, MMS and Facebook). Interestingly, uploading is done in the background so you will not be stuck waiting for the transfer to finish before using your phone.

You can also share the photos located in your Skydrive via email, SMS and Messenger/ Facebook. The Office Hub also offers a deeper Skydrive integration allowing to browser and download your documents from the cloud, see what’s shared with you and search through your content in the cloud. here are two videos demo of the features in action:
