How will Symbian 3 devices sync with the PC?

Nokia announced three more phones based on their new Symbian 3 platform.  The phones cater to both business and social media users.  The big question that remains for business users is, “How will these Symbian 3 phones sync with my PC?”.

Google Sync has supported over-the-air sync with devices running the Symbian S60 operating system.  They sync contacts and calendar data two-ways.  Will Google Sync also support two-way sync with Symbian 3 devices?  If they do, CompanionLink can has a way for people to sync PC contacts and calendar data with Symbian 3 devices.

PC <> CompanionLink <> Google account <> Google Sync <> Symbian 3 device

CompanionLink for Google is a product that will sync PC software like Outlook to any Google or Gmail account.  If Google Sync will support sync with Symbian 3 devices, this data will then transfer over-the-air with the Symbian 3 device.  Any changes made on the device will sync back to the Google account, which will sync back to the PC courtesy of CompanionLink.

Let’s hope Google Sync supports Symbian 3.

How to sync the Motorola DROID X with Outlook

Sync the DROID X with your PC

The new Motorola DROID X, available today, rightly deserves its position is Verizon’s new flagship phone. The DROID X features a huge 4.3″ screen, a lightning-fast 1 GHz processor, an 8 megapixel camera, and it runs Android 2.1. With all these amazing features, it’s a bit surprising to learn that the DROID X does not include any way to sync with Microsoft Outlook out of the box.

Google provides a free tool called Google Calendar Sync that syncs Outlook calendars to any Google account. The DROID X can be configured to then automatically sync with that Google account. However, Google Calendar Sync is a bit limited, as it only supports the primary Outlook calendar, and does not include data range options or Outlook categories support.

CompanionLink is proud to offer two ways to sync Outlook with the DROID X. Sync contacts, calendar and tasks wireless via a Google account, or sync Outlook contacts, calendar, tasks and notes to the DROID X direct via USB. Both options support two-way sync, so that changes made on the phone will update in Outlook.

CompanionLink’s sync solutions for the DROID X works in conjunction with an Android app called DejaOffice. DejaOffice is a robust suite of business-class contacts, calendar, tasks and notes apps for Android. It features advanced functionality such as color-coded categories, search and sort by company name, linking calendar entries to contacts and much more.
