How to sync the T-Mobile G2 with Outlook

The T-Mobile G2 is a new Android slider, released today on (you get one guess) T-Mobile. Many new G2 owners are migrating from older BlackBerrys or Windows Mobile devices, and will be looking for a way to sync the G2 with Outlook. Google provides the free Google Calendar Sync tool to sync the primary Outlook calendar with any Google account. The T-Mobile G2 can automatically sync contacts and calendar with a Google account through its wireless data connection. However, Google provides no support to sync contacts or other data types, such as tasks and notes.

CompanionLink offers two ways to sync the G2 with Outlook – wired USB sync and wireless sync through Google. CompanionLink’s wireless sync via Google supports two-way sync of contacts and calendar, and offers the ability to sync with any Outlook folder. CompanionLink can also sync Outlook tasks to the Google calendar as untimed entries.

CompanionLink’s USB sync with the G2 works in tandem with an Android app called DejaOffice. DejaOffice is an integrated suite of calendar, contacts, tasks and notes apps for Android with support for advanced Outlook features such as color-coded categories and custom fields. Outlook data will sync to the DejaOffice business apps on the G2.

CompanionLink is free for 14 days. For more information and to download the free trial, visit www.companionlink.com/g2
