iSync 2.1 and Nokia 6680, 6682

Mac lovers might have been happy to upgrade to OS-X Tiger earlier this year, but like me they very quickly realized what a piece of garbage it really was. Two upgrades later, I have finally found a feature I love – the new improved wireless access. Still, I think from a common user’s perspective, iSync 2.1 upgrade is what matters most. It now supports some of the latest phones on the market, like my current beloved Nokia 6682 (6680 in Europe) and other latest Nokia models. More handsets from Panasonic and Sony Ericsson get support with these release.

However, it is not without its own quirks. For instance, you can iSync your Nokia with only one computer. The reason for this being that Apple installs an iSync agent on your Symbian powered Nokia phone. Which makes syncing a breeze. But that’s the only bad news. Good news is that it syncs photos, address book, calendar and the to-do list from your Apple Address Book and iCal with your phone.
