Droid user tip to show all contacts

Droid 2.0 users who use CompanionLink USB to sync data may notice that some, or perhaps all, of their contacts do not display on the device after synchronizing. The problem is that the display options on the Droid will typically hide the user’s contacts based on group/category membership. Here is how to fix this problem:

1. On the Droid, open Contacts, then go to Menu -> Display Options.
2. Tap the name of the primary contacts account. This will cause the account group list to display.

– To display categorized contacts, select “System group: My Contacts”.

– To display uncategorized contacts, select “All other contacts”.

NOTE: To filter the display so that it only show certain groups (categories), uncheck “System group: My Contacts”, then check the name(s) of the specific groups you want to display.

Phone breakdown of Android platform (October 2009)

Android phone breakdown by AdMob (October 2009)

In the October 2009 issue of AdMob Mobile Metrics Report, the company has a telling chart that lists the phones people are using on the Android platform.  While the Droid has been available for less than one month, it has managed to grab nearly 25% of the Android market.

CompanionLink continues to align closer with Android devices.  CompanionLink already offers a two-way sync solution between PC and Google, which natively feeds the address book and calendar on Android phones.  CompanionLink is also working on a two-way USB sync between PC and Android.  This will allow users to sync PC (ie – Microsoft Outlook) contacts, calendar, tasks and notes to their Android using the USB cable that came with their device.
