Best Buy Readies Mobile Backup
Best Buy Mobile Monday announced the impending availability of mIQ, which it calls a "mobile-Web connected cloud service." The service will allow users to back up applications and other data on their mobile phones on a company-hosted server.
The chain will begin offering the service Oct. 12. It is available free for new Best Buy Mobile customers, while existing customers can sign up as well.
“Smartphones allow our customers to do some pretty amazing things, but sometimes all the great features can be overwhelming, as a result, customers have a hard time getting the most out of their devices,” Best Buy Mobile Director of Business Development Mark Mosiniak said as part of the announcement.
