The Motorola DROID 2, available today, is the next big Android phone to land here in the US. It follows on the heels of the original Motorola DROID, one of the top selling Android devices thus far. New owners looking to sync the DROID 2 with their PCs have few options. Google provides the free Google Calendar Sync tool to sync the primary Outlook calendar with any Google account. The Motorola DROID 2 has built-in support to sync contacts and calendar with a Google account through its wireless data connection. However, this solution is limited to only the primary Outlook calendar, and no support for contacts or other data types, such as tasks and notes.
CompanionLink offers two ways to sync the DROID 2 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 multiple Outlook folders. CompanionLink can also sync Outlook tasks to the Google calendar as untimed entries. CompanionLink’s USB sync with DROID 2 works in conjuction with an Android app called DejaOffice. DejaOffice is a contact manager application suite with modules for contacts, calendar, tasks and notes, with support for advanced features such as categories. Outlook data will sync to the DejaOffice business apps for the DROID 2.
CompanionLink’s sync solutions for the DROID 2 start at $39.95. Free technical support is included. More information, along with a 14-day free trial of the software can be found at www.companionlink.com/droid2

During Apple’s recent keynote event, Steve Jobs announced the newest version of the iPhone’s operating system, dubbed iOS 4. The new iOS 4 will add some hotly-anticipated features to the iPhone, such as application multitasking. In addition to new user features, iOS 4 opens a whole slew of new APIs for developers to use in their applications.
DejaOffice is our super-charged suite of contacts, calendar, tasks and notes apps for iPhone. The new iOS 4 will allow us to introduce new features that haven’t been possible in previous versions of the mobile operating system. We are especially excited about the new calendar APIs. This will allow us to better integrate the DejaOffice calendar with the iPhone’s native calendar. Apple is also opening up developer access to the iPhone’s notification system, which will allow DejaOffice to use audible calendar notifications (don’t miss that appointment!). To see a roadmap of planned features, as well as general information about DejaOffice, visit www.dejaoffice.com.

AndroidCentral.com ran a poll on who was planning to buy the EVO 4G (for which CompanionLink provides complete two-way sync). Turns out that most of the folks are coming from the BlackBerry platform. The EVO 4G arrives June 4 on Sprint’s network.
iPhone, webOS and Windows Mobile all tie for a distant second place. The surprising element to the poll is the number of people buying their first smartphone (roughly the same number as those migrating away from other existing smartphones).
There seems to be a lot of people still sitting on the sidelines, waiting for just the right smartphone before buying their first one. AT&T’s new (lower) pricing for data plans may help bring these people into the smartphone world. The cost of entry is now just $15/month. If history is any indication, other carriers will follow AT&T’s price shuffle to attract new customers.

DejaOffice is fully compatible with the Bump app for iPhone, iPad and Android devices. If you store contacts in DejaOffice, you can exchange them with others using Bump. It works great!
We are working to integrate the Bump API to exchange other DejaOffice data like calendar appointments, tasks and notes. For example, a manager can use this as a great tool to delegate tasks to an assistant.
1. Create a task in DejaOffice
2. Every morning, walk into the office and bump fists with your assistant to transfer the tasks. (Plus, you’ll actually look more sociable!)
3. Your assistant can work off the list on their device, or use CompanionLink to sync that list from DejaOffice to PC software like Microsoft Outlook.

A CNET blog post cites AT&T’s Business Solutions unit claiming 4 out of 10 sales of the iPhone are made to “enterprise users”. The iPhone has come a long way since its inception as a consumer-centric device.
Not surprisingly, CompanionLink is witnessing similar trends.
More and more business professionals are asking how they can make their iPhones and Android-based smartphones work more like business-friendly devices. They recognize these devices are powerful mini-computers, but they need help leveraging that power so it works for their business.
– contacts, calendar, tasks and notes can be organized into categories that match and link with your PC
– appointments can be created with people from your address book
– view company name right next to each name in your address book
– create custom fields and label them whatever you want
– search functionality works even with your custom fields
The mobile world has moved on since the first PalmPilot devices arrived in the 90s. However, the timeless business productivity principles are still in effect today. CompanionLink and DejaOffice lets mobile professionals have a suite of tools on their phones and tablets to be as productive as they are when using their PCs.
