I am new to WP7, but had WM for years before I switched to BB 2 years ago. I just purchased a Lumia 900 last week coming from a Bold 9900. I have to say that I love the Lumia, but I was expecting more connectivity with other Microsoft products, mainly Windows 7. I know there is some capabilities with XBox, but I don't have one. Seems like I should be able to do more with Windows 7 from my phone other than auto-sync music. I tried bluetooth as well to no avail. Is this it? I have been searching and haven't found anything. Loving the phone, but please tell me there is more to come. Thanks.

ZRemote is the closest thing I could find to deliver some intergration, without fully remoting into the pc. I don't need to go that far all the time, but just simple functions like send a .doc or .pdf without Skydrive all the time.

I expect that future interaction will more and more involve the Cloud, and less with local PCs. To the point where tethering will no longer be necessary or possible. Just my two cents.

I think the plan (And this is just from what I hear on Windows Weekly) is that the Zune Desktop Software is going away. In Windows 8 your login will be mainly your Windows Live account as such it will have tighter integration with Skydrive. Files you want transfered between devices will be there. I think they also discussed that with the Music App in Windows 8 (Both for the Phone and Desktop) you could control playback of your XBox system similar to AirPlay.
