Smartphone and Pocket PC under Windows Mobile are becoming more and more popular. Since WM5, these phone are using a new RDNIS protocol to synchronise with computers. This is good news for Linux users, as this protocol is much more simple and robust than the previous one. As a result, the synchronisation between a Linux PC and one of these phones is more simple to setup.
This article will explain how to install and configure SynCE to setup a synchronisation between a WM Phone and a Ubuntu workstation to be able to browse the mobile phone filesystem. You will then be able to get some infos about your phone and, more interesting, to browse your phone filesystem thru Nautilus
It won't explain how to synchronise your contacts or calendar with Evolution or Thunderbird. This can be acheived with some additionnal steps, but as I'm not needing it, I haven't tried.
This setup has been done on a Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04 workstation, but it should work on any later version.
