Google has made its Sync software available to the iPhone and Windows Mobile devices. Google Sync lets users automatically synchronize calendar and contacts data between Gmail and Google calendar and mobile handsets. It works because Google has licensed Microsoft's ActiveSync technology. Google Sync works both ways, so any changes made on the phone are automatically reflected on the web and vice versa. Google Sync is also available for SyncML-enabled phones and BlackBerries, S60, Series 40 and Sony Ericsson phones. Google Sync for the iPhone and Windows Mobile is free, beta software. By licensing ActiveSync, Google has opened up the possibility for true push email for the iPhone and Android.

It erased a lot of contacts on my Diamond and created a bunch of duplicate contacts. It completely deleted everything under the "All People" tab on the Diamond. My calendar on my Diamond is ef'd-up too! Evil or Very Mad
That sucks dude, I have it on my BB Storm and it works like a charm.

It also beats the hell out of spending an extra $15.00 a month to VZW.
That's what you get for using Windblows SLOWBLE. Laughing

Android already has push GMail

It is not Exchange, but it is push. Same with Contact and Calendar sync. However... iPhone users will greatly appriciate this new feature.

Look, I understand that the company philosophy between Google, Microsoft and Apple are VASTLY different, but seriously... why did it take so damn long?
