Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 will allow users to backup text messages, app lists, accounts, IE favourites, and themes to Hotmail and Outlook.com. When a device is first turned on, users will be given the option is sign in to their Microsoft account to sync data between phone, PC, and even Xbox.

The Verge also reports that Windows Phone 8 will still include the option to automatically upload photos to SkyDrive, but users will now have the option to include video and have greater control over backups.

These extra backup options will removes much of the hassle that is involved and will allow users to make their data even more safe. It will also make the transition from one Windows Phone 8 device to another much more fluid.

Microsoft is likely to announce more information about the backup options at the Windows Phone 8 event in New York on September 5th.
