Windows Phone 7 Gains Server Management Features

Microsoft is clearly looking for an enterprise home run with Windows Phone 7. While there are plenty of consumer features such as Xbox integration, the real core is a set of enterprise and integration points (these aren't entirely unique to Windows phones I, should point out).

One neat little feature is just about ready to ship. It's the Windows Phone 7 Connector which gives some base-level server management capabilities. It also lets Windows Phones stream files from servers.

On the server management side, phones will be able to change user passwords and establish accounts. Unfortunately, it only works with low-end versions of Windows Server such as Home Server and Small Business Sever Esssentials.
