Google just announced Google Sync beta support for Symbian S60 smartphones, which is very welcome news. The company was already supporting it to some degree, because I was using it with the Nokia E63 handset. Unfortunately, at that time, only my contacts were synchronizing. With the upgraded Google Sync service, calendars get synchronized, as well as contacts; it’s a true two-way sync. Since Google Sync was only working with contacts up to now, I had to add another, third-party solution for my calendar. Talk about a lack of Synergy. ;)

You will need Nokia’s Mail for Exchange in order to use the push technology of Google Sync, so if you don’t already have it on your S60 device, you’ll want to grab that first. Then just point your S60 browser to http://m.google.com/sync to set up the service.

  1. Exchange is an interesting choice … though a challenging one as well. Since you can only have a single sync profile in Mail For Exchange, you have to choose whether you want to sync with Google or a (likely) pre-existing Exchange server. There’s no way to sync your work stuff over to Google. ;(

  2. Wait… I’ve been syncing my S60 devices to Google calendar via the built-in Exchange support for a while now!

    How is this new?
