If you own a Smartphone, especially one running Windows Mobile, you have probably been frustrated by the fact that Windows Mobile can only sync contact information with a full licensed copy of Microsoft Outlook. Besides the fact that Outlook is a pretty expensive application, it is overkill if all you are looking to do is to sync a few measly contacts so that you don’t lose them if your phone dies.

Google has seen this gaping hole and recently started offering Google Sync, an application that enables uses of Blackberry, Windows Mobile, Symbian and Nokia phones to sync their contacts between their Google accounts and their phones. My wife was quite happy to learn about this one.
