Sync the Nokia Lumia 900 with Outlook

 

Is the Nokia Lumia 900 the latest must-have Windows Phone? All signs point to yes.

Image Credit: PC WorldPositioned as a flagship Windows Phone, the Lumia 900 has been making a big impression among many early reviewers. And with its 4.3″ display, snappy 1.4GHz processor, 8MP camera, and beautiful form factor, these positive reviews seem to be well-earned. The Lumia 900 is, by all means, a solid phone at a great price.

Despite the positive reviews, however, the Lumia 900 is lacking in one big area. Many business users want to know how to sync the Nokia Lumia 900 with Outlook. It will support Exchange sync out of the box, but standalone Outlook users must look elsewhere. CompanionLink offers two methods to sync Outlook contacts, calendar and tasks with the Lumia 900 – via Google or via Window Live.

CompanionLink works by syncing Outlook data to a Google account or Windows Live account. From there the Lumia can be configured to automatically sync with either account over its wireless data connection. For more information on how CompanionLink syncs Windows Phone devices like the Lumia 900, visit www.companionlink.com/windowsphone/.

CompanionLink Supports Syncing the Lumia 710 with Outlook

Don’t let its simple design and unassuming price fool you – the Lumia packs a lot of bang for your buck. It really is a nice phone for the money.

Featuring a 1.4GHz processor, 3.7” display, and 8GB of storage, the Lumia 710 is a nice, mid-level device when it comes to the specs. And at the low price of free on contract from T-Mobile, it’s easily one of the best buys for those who want a great smartphone, but don’t need something with the power (or price) of the Galaxy Nexus or DROID RAZR, for example.

Just like its older brother, the Lumia 800, CompanionLink supports syncing the Lumia 710 with Outlook. In fact, we offers two methods to sync Outlook contacts, calendar and tasks with the Lumia 710 – syncing through Google or via Window Live Hotmail. For Outlook users who aren’t on an Exchange server, these sync options make getting your data onto your phone fast and easy.

Over 25 New Smartphones and Tablets Unveiled At CES 2012

The 2012 Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas may be winding down, but things are just getting started at CompanionLink. By my count, over 25 new smartphones and tablets were announced at CES this year. They range from high-end smartphones to budget-friendly tablets, and from Android to Windows Phone.

As these devices are released over the next few months, we’ll be taking a closer look at them and testing them to ensure compatibility with CompanionLink and DejaOffice. It is our intention to support all of these new devices announced at CES. Stay tuned to the blog for updates on this!

And for those interested in what was announced at CES, but haven’t had time to parse through the countless articles, here’s a short list of just some of what you can look forward to over the next few months:

The Galaxy Note

The Galaxy Note from Samsung has been around internationally for a few months, but is finally coming to those of us in the US. Described as a “phablet” by some, this phone features a beautiful 5.3” screen and a stylus. It’s great for productivity buffs and creative types alike.

The Galaxy Nexus on Sprint

Another bit of good news from Samsung – the Galaxy Nexus is expanding its userbase to Sprint customers. No longer a Verizon exclusive, the Galaxy Nexus will be landing on Sprint’s new LTE network sometime in the next few months. With top-of-the-line specs and Android 4.0, it’s sure to be a popular phone among Sprint customers!

The Lumia 900 and Titan II

Not to be overshadowed by a host of Android announcements, the Windows Phone platform is gaining two great new devices. The Lumia 900 from Nokia improves upon the already quite popular Lumia 800. With a bigger screen, more cameras, a better battery life, and more, the Lumia 900 is sure to be a big hit.

HTC has put out a Windows Phone sequel of its own, as well. The Titan II may look similar to last year’s model, but it packs some exciting features of its own. Chief among them are 4G data and a 16-megapixel (yes, you read that right!) camera. Yet another Windows Phone device that is sure to do quite well!

The Eee Pad MeMO

While its name may sound a bit unassuming, the Eee Pad MeMO is a serious tablet. ASUS has worked a bit of magic on this one, you could say. It features a 7” screen, Android 4.0, and a quad-core processor (read: fast!) all for just $249. For those keeping score, that’s just $50 more than a Kindle Fire and the same prices as the Nook Tablet. If this tablet lives up to its specs, it will likely be quite difficult to keep on the shelves!

How to sync the Nokia Lumia 800 with Outlook

Nokia’s recent shift toward the Windows Phone platform had many wondering if the iconic manufacturer would be able to continue its track record of success. Early reports are indicating that sales of the Lumia 800, Nokia’s flagship Windows Phone device, have been overwhelmingly positive. This is good news for Nokia fans and Windows Phone fans alike. Nokia has always had delivered excellent hardware design, and the Windows Phone platform gets backing from a major hardware manufacturer.

One of the big questions users have when they pick up the device is how to sync the Nokia Lumia 800 with Outlook. Out of the box, the Lumia can sync with Exchange, but standalone Outlook users must look for another solution. CompanionLink offers two methods to sync Outlook contacts, calendar and tasks with the Lumia 800 – syncing through Google or via Window Live Hotmail.

CompanionLink works by syncing Outlook data to a Google account or Windows Live Hotmail account. From there the Lumia can be configured to automatically sync with either account over its wireless data connection (note: Google does not sync tasks with Winodws Phone devices – CompanionLink recommends syncing via Windows Live Hotmail).
