Exchange/ActiveSync plus Outlook Desktop Sync?
I don't have a Droid yet, but am seriously considering it (current BB-Storm1 owner...which I like, but the Droid is just something else altogether....besides, more for less?....it's a no-brainer).
For syncing my calendar and contacts, I currently do this...
Account is on Exchange server at work (managed by campus central IT)
Sync work desktop Outlook with Exchange server via direct connection
Sync BB with work desktop Outlook via BB Desktop Manager
Sync BB with home desktop Outlook via BB Desktop Manager
So, at work, I connect Outlook directly with the Exchange server, whereas at home I do not (I do not want to connect directly with my home computer, and prefer just using the web portal to access my e-mail there, yet I like having my calendar and contacts synced between home, work and phone….easier life without having to manage two calendars, etc).
Syncing my phone with Outlook on both my work computer and my home computer accomplishes syncing my calendar and contacts between all 4 places (1. Exchange, 2. work computer, 3. home computer & 4. phone).
As far as you know, will I still be able to do this with the Moto. Droid or HTC Eris?
I'm thinking I will do it like this...
Account is on Exchange server at work
Sync work desktop Outlook with Exchange server via direct connection.
Sync Droid with Exchange server via ActiveSync
Sync Droid with home desktop Outlook via ? (ActiveSync and/or whatever software comes with the Droid)
Does that make sense, and/or is there a better way to keep all of these places synced?
