Thanks for the reply!

My problem is (I don't know if use case is appropriate), that I was able to
sync my phone and Palm III without issue until 2005. Palm broke and phone
was replaced some time after and sync stopped working, because newer phones
were using SyncML already.

I'm not sure what you mean by saying privacy - I want to have my events,
notes, todos in sync on TDE and my phone - I don't see any problem if I
sync up via USB cable between PC and phone.

So I am looking for a way to sync up few devices. Tablet, 2xPhones, TDE etc.
What should be synced is the trivial once (cal, event, address, todo,
notes) and possibly all the rest possible to be synced via syncML (images,
mp3 etc - but this is nice to have - I'm sure it will work as the syncml
library is pretty good - we  just miss an interface in TDE for it).

I have to ask/check Jolla what kind of protocol they offer.

I tried to prepare myself for KDE4 ~2010 but found out that neither KDE4 nor
the opensync were going to work properly with SyncML. I have ported/updated
KDEPIM to use akonadi and opensync, which is usable in some extend, but not
with syncML. After a discussion with syncevo leader and looking into the
SyncML protocol I finally understood that the only way is to get advantage
of the syncevo engine and do some kind of interface on top that would fit
TDE ... might be tdepim and kitchensync or whatever - might be something
From what I have seen there are also few other candidates that can be
updated - I mean use the interface and replace the old code below

I hope this gives an idea
