For contacts, calendar, todos, etc. there is a project called opensync
which is very promising. I used it while it was named multisync, but
they decided to rewrite the whole thing from scratch to make it easier
to develop. It is pluginbased now. I think KDE 4 will support opensync
through kitchensync/akonadi. It is still in beta, but I think a new
release will be out soon.
"OpenSync is a synchronization framework that is platform and
For the geodata I think the opensync developers are thinking of some
sort of generel file synchronization as well, maybe using rsync as a
plugin to opensync, but I'm not sure about that.
Clearly, a device running openmoko must be the simplest device
thinkable to develop a synchronization tool for, as one can tune bits
on both sides. (I'm not saying it will be trivial though...)
