I find it funny that every time I go to post a new blog entry, the wordpress admin site looks different. They seem to change their design faster than I can post.
Anyway, for those who are as slow as me on the uptake, google recently announced (around 2 weeks ago) exchange protocol support for mail, adding to their existing calendar and contacts push-sync functionality. I’m not sure if anyone else will be as ecstatic as me on hearing this, but for the benefit of the doubt I thought I should post it here.
If you already have google sync setup for contact/calendar as I did, it is as simple as flicking an iSwitch. Otherwise, read here for full instructions.
