Google Sync for Mobile

leave a comment »

Good, but not enough to drop MobileMe just yet; add push Gmail, and fix the part where it deletes your existing contacts and I’m there.

As far as the part where deletes your contacts, this is normal Exchange behavior (so I’m told), but I’m still confused: who in their right mind would do this? As an alternative, if Google already has instructions on how to do a proper IMAP setup for the iPhone, why can’t they just change the email setup in the next version of the software to implement Google Sync on top of IMAP with no changes to your existing contacts when the account is created?

As for me, I’ll probably hold off until they add Gmail or find a way around the other issue.
