It looks like there's a new contender for syncing Windows Mobile phones to Macs. The latest software from Eltima, called SyncMate, will do all the fundamental desktop syncing tasks for the low, low price of $0 American. SyncMate is a version 1.0 product, with the practically-necessary-nowadays "Beta" tag after its name. It requires Windows Mobile 5 or 6, and a Mac with OSX 10.4 or later.

Though I've long lobbied for the use of a Windows Mobile phone to actually test stuff like this before I report in Dieter's absence, success eludes me. I don't know if this will work with Palm's "secret recipe" threaded text messages on the Treo 750, or really if this will work at all, caveat emptor. [via]
