While Windows Mobile users have ActiveSync or Windows Mobile Device Center, to synchronize their Windows phones with Outlook, out-of-the-box, Android only supports over the air (OTA) cloud-sync to Google Calendar and Contacts. However, HTC has developed HTC Sync which allows HTC Magic, Hero and Tattoo users to synchronize their device with Outlook as well. Now, HTC has released version 2.0.8 which comes with a couple of improved functions and provides more connectivity between your HTC Phone and PC.

While HTC Sync still features synchronization between your Outlook and your HTC Phone, HTC also added media enhancements, allowing to synchronize your contacts pictures along with their contact information. Furthermore, HTC Sync now also to sync your smartphone's time with your PC's time and vice versa, providing the most accurate time for you, wherever or whenever, you are.

Synchronizing your phone with your PC is easey. Just connect your HTC Android smartphone with your PC using the mini or micro USB cable and watch as HTC Sync displays your model name and starts to sync your information for you.

This HTC Sync update is applicable globally for all HTC Magic, Hero and Tattoo smartphones and works on Windows XP Service Pack 2, Windows Vista and Windows 7.

Cheers ~ Arne

Sounds good, but OTA should function great as well? HTC is pretty early with their first update for the HTC Hero which has launched not so long ago. For me the Hero is a great functioning phone even though I would go crazy if I could get a hero with the 1GHZ Qualcomm processor.

HTC Sync works with HD 2 and windows 7 ? Active sync does not.
Thanks.

To use the HTC HD2 with Windows 7, you have to use Microsoft's Windows Mobile Device Center (which was introduced with Windows Vista); ActiveSync only works on Windows XP. Works fine with my HD2 and my Windows 7 PCs. HTC Sync works with HTC's Android smartphones only, not with any Windows Mobile Windows phone.
