I read Guido Diepen’s blog post Syncing WM5/WM6 made easy with new Mandriva and it seems like Mandriva has made SynCE and OpenSync work out the box with no pain whatsoever. It’s like a dream coming true! 🙂 Here is Adam Will’s video Synchronizing with Windows Mobile 5/6 made easy in Mandriva. Watch and enjoy!
I browsed the list of protocols provided as part of Microsoft Interoperability but I couldn’t spot anything of use for SynCE. Anyway, I hope that this is a good move in general and not a new oxymoron.
Sony Ericsson goes Windows Mobile
Sony Ericsson unveiled their XPERIA X1 device today and it runs Microsoft Windows Mobile! This means that Linux users will be able to use SynCE to connect their XPERIA X1 devices.
I wonder if it’s manufactured by HTC like most other Windows Mobile devices? Engadget has all the other juicy details. A screen with 800 × 480 pixels is not bad!
