As I mentioned in the "Funambol" threat, there is already a tool which can 
synchronise via SyncML, but it was written for Qtopia-4.3.1 so someone might 
have to look at it ..

Wait, here is the text of the older post:

I guess this is an open secret already, but just in case someone wants to have 
a synchronisation solution which uses SyncML:


This tool can be used to sync your appointments, tasks and contacts with any 
SyncML capable server or web-services (my.funambol.com, ...). The current 
solution was written against and tested with Qtopia-4.3.1, it is known to 
compile and run with Qtopia-4.4.0 (and probably QtExtended) but there are 
issues in the backend I used (Funambol C++ Client API), so if somebody wants 
to step up, I would be glad to offer some help :-) And of course I'd like to 
see it integrated somehow into one of those OpenMoko distros.
