?Do you supply software that enables sync between Mac OS X and Nokia 9500/9300?
!The answer is two-fold:

Yes, our SyncML Server with ODBC interface can be used on Mac OS X together with a SQL database engine that supports ODBC on Mac OS X, such as MySQL or Filemaker Server, and works fine with Nokia 9300/9500.

However, we do not have a SyncML server that interfaces to iCal and Addressbook. The reason is because Apple?s iSync is a SyncML server itself which does exactly this. We are aware that iSync does not support all SyncML devices yet we might support with our server. However, Apple is constantly improving iSync and therefore there is no market for a parallel solution from us.

The german company novamedia however offers iSync plugins to support phones not (yet) supported by Apple, including the 9500, 9300, 9300i and many others.
