CompanionLink Brings Palm Desktop Sync to Palm Pre

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

One of the concerns for PalmOS users (at for this user) about the Palm
Pre is data migration from older PalmOS devices. CompanionLink which
for years provided solutions for syncing Palm devices with Outlook is
now showing demo video on how syncing between a variety of desktop
PIMs, including Palm Desktop and Outlook, and the Palm Pre will work:

This isn't a perfect solution for everyone I suppose since it uses
Google as an intermediary but for those of us who have to use Google
for their Android phones anyway, it makes migration to the Pre fairly
natural. Now the biggest question is how much all this will cost. The
Pre itself is likely to command a premium price when it debuts and
MobileApps' PalmOS Classic emulator will likely be a separate
purchase. Now we have CompanionLink's new desktop conduits as yet
another potential expense. While a healthy eco-system of third-party
applications will be necessary for the Pre to catch on, Palm also
needs to consider the expense of upgrading from an existing PalmOS
device to a Pre as well.
