Last week at a Microsoft press conference at the Mobile World Congress, a Redmond outfit showed off its upcoming integration between Windows Phone 7 and the Xbox Kinect.

Kinect with mobile devices? Are you going to carry the kinect cam in your pocket? Or just hook up your WP7 or Iphone while at home, just to throw balls (ATM)...

I understand integrating kinect into all MS products, but cant this be done using kinect already 2 player functionality. I dont know im not a casual motion fan so maybe i just dont understand its usefulness
