Dell today announced that they will enter the smartphone market with the launch of the Mini 3 device that’s based on the Google Android platform. The units will first sell in China and Brazil this year.
If the Dell Mini 3 is like current Android-based smartphones that automatically sync with Google contacts and calendar, then Dell Mini 3 users will be able to use CompanionLink to sync Microsoft Outlook data with their Google accounts and their phones.
CompanionLink supports supports two-way sync using Chinese characters. This works because the core architecture behind CompanionLink’s products is Unicode-compliant. Customers who use Chinese characters in their desktop software – such as Microsoft Outlook – will be able to sync their Outlook data with Google and Dell Mini 3.
