Motorola Phone Portal leaked
Motorola has developed a new device management app called the Motorola Phone Portal
Leaked information suggests that Motorola will be releasing a new app that allows PC-to-mobile connections over Wi-Fi.
The new info and images surfaced over at AndroidHDBlog.it and reveals that the new Motorola Phone Portal allows hassle free connections between PC and Motorola mobiles via USB or Wi-Fi.
Now, obviously USB connectivity isn't anything new, but the option of connecting over Wi-Fi means that there's no need to install finicky drivers or cumbersome software on the host computer; a particularly attractive prospect for most users.
Once installed and running on the handset, a user is simply given a local web address to type into their PC browser, through which, the app allows total control and back-up of contacts, photos, videos, music, bookmarks and browser history.
It is rumoured that the new app will feature prominently on the homescreen of the keenly awaited Motorola Sholes/Tao handset and early reports suggest that the UI is well designed and user-friendly. Motorola will undoubtedly be pleased to hear this, but is keeping tight-lipped with official details, although we expect an announcement to coincide with the launch of the Sholes.
