How to convert POINT(x y) coordinates in degrees

Hi everybody. I'm writing a WP8 app that should read a series of POINT(x y) strings, for example POINT(1396412.450000 4990185.201000). I want to represent this kind of coordinate in a map control (Microsoft.Phone.Maps.Controls namespace), and even use them in a GeoCoordinate (with the capital 'c') object. This object "accepts" only coordinates in degree format (-90°,90°).

Can anyone help me?

What format is your Point representation in?  How do you get that value?
