Since we'll be talking about Symbian Tuesday, I thought this piece was 
interesting.  Having got my start in mobile development with the Palm OS I 
especially got a kick out of the last paragraph.


I haven't had a chance to actually synchronize my Nokia 6620 with the PC yet 
because (1) there's no cable, much less a cradle for connecting the two, and 
(2) the Ambicom USB Bluetooth adapter I bought a year ago doesn't support the 
serial profile needed for synchronizing with the phone.  Once I get a new 
adapter I plan to size up the PIM (and app data) sync situation and report my 
findings.  There's a little thing called SyncML that Symbian (or maybe it's 
Nokia) is supporting now that isn't mentioned in this article, but might be the 
"missing sync."
