I have the following
Phone - Samsung Galaxy S with Froyo
PC - Outlook 2007
Companion Link Pro

1. I am thinking about getting an android tablet to replace my crappy and slow netbook. I was wondering if it is possbile to have all 3 sync'd. The idea being that I could create or modify a record on one device and then it automatically changes on the other devices, so all 3 are always the same. Mobile Me seems to do this quite effectively for the Iphone, Ipad and PC, I was wondering if this can do the same?

2. How well will DJO work on a tablet and is there any plans for a tablet specific version?

3. Lately when I sync my phone it changes the way my contacts are displayed in Outlook. I have all my contacts filed as First Name/ Last Name, but after a sync it changes them all to Last Name/ First Name. Is there a way to fix this?

Hello Lester,

Thanks for the post.
Here are some comments I have.
1. CompanionLink Pro allows you to Sync up to 3 separate mobile device profiles.SO the Phone Tablet capability is already there and gaining in popularity I might add.
2. DejaOffice for Android is Tablet Mode device ready. We have tablet mode for a number of screens that can be enabled. Expect to see more development over time just like the rest of DejaOffice.

The change in Outlook you report is very interesting.
Can you please provide me with a few more details:
Sync method
DejaOffice version
CompanionLink build #

Thanks,

Sorry it has taken so long to reply.

I spent an hour changing all my contacts to First/Last name.I updated to 4046, synced and it changed about half my contact back to last/ first name. Spent another half an hour changing them back. Will let you know if they change back again. Also got a couple of duplicated contacts.

Hello Lester,

Thanks for the update. If you are syncing with the native contact application duplicates can sometimes fill in from that side.
