SkyBox: a service similar to Apple's MobileMe that syncs PIM data to the web. It inlcudes backup services and file sharing.

SkyLine: Similar to SkyBox, but for small businesses. It includes hosted Exchange.

SkyMarket: a software marketplace for Windows Mobile devices that can be accessed directly on the phone (Microsoft's version of the App Store).

We've seen the honeycomb UI floating around the web for several months now, and that's one of the screens Neowin shows.
