I'd start by looking at SyncML and ScheduleWorld. I use (and have used) SyncML
for quite some time and it works fairly well (right now I can't get my temporary
phone  - a SonyEricsson T610 - to sync up the address book but the calendar is
still fine). Using SyncEvolution you get an almost perfect match.
