Google today launched the beta of its new Google Sync service for mobile phones. The service, which is free, allows you to synchronise data between your phone and Google's web services. This, for example, allows you to synchronise the contacts on your phone with the contacts data used by Google's GMail. All recent S60 and UIQ phones are supported through the use of SyncML. However currently only the synching of contacts is supported. Read on for more details.
Why Google only supports syncing contacts using SyncML is a mystery. There is however a Swedish company that has filled the gap with a great free service for syncing your calendar with Google as well. You'll find them at http://www.syncme.se/
