USB sync with Palm Pre

CompanionLink announced the first USB sync solution with Palm Pre.  Before this solution, users had to sync data over-the-air or through their web-based Google/Gmail account.  For many, this was an unnecessary step that they didn’t want to do.  Also, users with sensitive customer data could not store their data in the cloud or sync via WiFi.

CompanionLink for webOS USB is a new software solution that does a direct USB sync with Palm Pre using the MicroUSB cable that comes with the phone. Data is securely synchronized two-ways when the phone is docked to the PC.

Data is syncs:

  • Contacts
  • Calendar
  • Tasks with categories
  • Memos with categories and priorities

CompanionLink will be offering a way for Outlook users to sync their data with the Palm Pre device.  All you need is CompanionLink for Google ($29.95, one-time purchase) and a free Google account.

So how does it work?

1. CompanionLink will sync Outlook with your Google account.

2. Your Palm Pre will sync with your Google account, over-the-air.

Two-way sync ensures that all your data is updated regardless of where you change it: in Outlook, in Google, or on your Palm Pre.
