<span class="gmail_quote"></span>I remember this being discussed long ago and I think there was a deal made in November last year. Take a look here:<br><br><a href="http://www.funambol.com/partners/" target="_blank" onclick="return top.js.OpenExtLink(window,event,this)">
http://www.funambol.com/partners/</a><br><br>It's PIM synchronization, and they support a lot different databases; Outlook, Mozilla, Kolab PIM and lots of mobile devices.
<br><br>I'm curious about the details in this partnership though and how far along they are in integrating it with OpenMoko.<br><br>Regards,<br><span class="sg"> C.M</span><br><div><span class="e" id="q_113be1d08eaa8142_2">

Bryce et al<br>sorry, I was typing without a lot of sleep, that's that I meant to come across. I think the optimum solution would be to find another open source project that is willing to work out a partnership deal... basically we'd distribute a branded copy of their software (<name of cool sync software project here />: openmoko edition (pretty much we change the logo and title... make sure that the other project 1. agrees and 2. gets mucho acknoledgement for their contribution)) they get more exposure, we get a really good sync solution, and the consumers get peace of mind. Then on the wiki we provide a list of other sync solutions if whatever we choose doesn't meet their needs. The idea in it's entirety is to give people their warm fuzzies on an "official" sync solution, but also be totally open about the fact that there's a world of other sync solutions out there. There's enough already out there that we don't need to be re-inventing the wheel on another sync system.
<br><br>I'd like to see a list on the wiki of various sync software, with people's opinions on then, then we select the "official-ish" one from the best on the list. It's been years since I've used anything resembling sync software, and that was in my pre-linux days so even then it was activesync or I'd get it rolling, but if someone wants to throw that up there, it'd be awesome
<br><br>--Jeff<br>P.S. hopefully this makes sense... I'm pretty sleep deprived at the moment<br><br><div><span><span class="gmail_quote">On 7/12/07, <b class="gmail_sendername">Bryce Leo</b> <<a href="mailto:email@example.com" target="_blank" onclick="return top.js.OpenExtLink(window,event,this)">

Hey there jeff. I totally agree that choice is key but I think that I
<br>feel there needs to be one basic sync app distributed with the phone.<br>I don't see much of a problem with building one that's easy to<br>maintain and cross platform. Java is great at the cross platform thing
<br>and funambol on the j2se base and Sync4J on the jt22 base seem to have<br>the necessary serer parts to be hackable into working the way that we<br>want.<br><br>>From what I've looked for I haven't found any included windows desktop
<br>sync apps, or much window support at all, but i'm sure once more kits<br>get out there the driver will harden up and the clients will start<br>popping into alpha and beta pretty quick.<br><br></blockquote></span>
