    I am a Blackberry Storm 2 user who is considering switching to a Droid X or Droid Incredible, and must sync contacts, calendar, notes and tasks with Outlook. All previous posts give mixed grades to CompanionLink and gSyncit regarding ability to flawlessly and reliabilby sync with Outlook. Has anyone used one of these applications realibily over a long period of time and experienced no problems with the sync capabiltiy?

    I hope you get an answer. I' m holding off on an android until I can find a way to do direct sync with my desktop. I just don't feel comfortable with Google.

    I just stumbled across a website that lists a lot of the syncing software available for the droid. It is syncdroid.net.

    Why would you even consider a Google device then?

    Because there was nothing else worth having.

    I too miss the easy ability to sync with Outlook calendar, notes, and tasks that I had with Windows Mobile.
    Google should learn to play nice with others.
