Thanks Slavek, 
this is why I opened the discussion here. As I mentioned I dropped my work
on this couple of years ago and I don't know how far it went on.
I'm sure the N9 uses SyncML and I'm sure why it works good. Unfortunately
there is no way for sync with TDE. It is a pain to do it with some tricks
etc.

I'll check the details on the N9 and the Jolla device and will try to update
my knowledge set.
It looks like I have to pull tdepim source. Which is the best way to get all
relevant packages?

This is what I see on my machine
