O-Sync Synchronization Service O-Sync Synchronization Service

29 August 2005

If you’re a follower of reviews posted here on iMobile.com.au, you’ve probably heard me and the other review guys constantly mentioning SyncML, or synchronization support on the latest and greatest handsets. For some of you, you have absolutely no idea what this means and just brush it off. Others look for the SyncML and synchronization capabilities in particular when looking for a new mobile handset. But back to those who don’t know what the SyncML service is:

SyncML is short for Synchronization Mark-up Language. It’s just like HTML – Hypertext Mark-up Language. SyncML is optimized for wireless networks, and was originally setup by Nokia, IBM, and Psion. It allows users to send their address and phone books, calendars and organizer entries, and much more to a remote server that stores the information. Fire up your PC and you notice a phone number needs to be changed – edit it and synchronize the PC with the same remote server. Re-synchronize your mobile phone with the updated information – you’ve got 0 chance of having out-dated phone numbers, addresses, and so forth stored in your handset.

A relatively new kid on the block is O-Sync (http://www.o-sync.com). In recent times, there was little available in terms of free synchronization servers – only businesses with large employee bases could afford, or bothered to, install synchronization servers. O-Sync breaks down this barrier with a free service offering users not only a place to store & manage their contacts & other data, but also offers one-to-one Hotlinking. This service ensures that users on different mobile networks all across the world can update their data and make it immediately available for other O-Sync users whom they had linked up with. If one of your Hotlinked contacts changes their details, the O-Sync server is updated, so your next synchronize will download this updated information without any manual input from you. Read on for more details!

  Lets face it, the two gadgets that most people never leave home without, are the cellular phone and the digital audio player. Hence, it makes sense in combining the two devices into one convenient package...
