Well that's good news for the desktop people - I'm rather surprised by the announcement as they aren't (are they?) a launch partner and as far as I am aware haven't released the SDK. So how has the product been developed? Anyone?
CompanionLink users will be able to sync contacts, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, calendar events, tasks, notes, and alarms and reminders between the Palm Pre and popular contact management solutions like ACT! by Sage, Google, Palm Desktop
, Lotus Notes, GoldMine, and Microsoft Outlook. Complete two-way synchronization ensures that any change to data on the Palm Pre will synchronize back with the contact management database. CompanionLink lets users choose between wired (USB) sync and wireless (over-the-air) sync with their phone.
It also means that I was completely wrong when I guessed that the Pre PIM would be locked down to prevent desktop sync, so it seems that a whole raft of competing products can be developed.
