Yes, I also hope they change their minds with Qt. I filed a complain to
unfortunately I did not find a corresponding site at the .com based Nokia
QT is a user interface and has absolutely nothing to do with SyncML
which is a protocol...

Of course. What I meant was that, now that Nokia have bought Trolltech
(the makers of the Qt cross-platform tool kit), perhaps Nokia will use
Qt to make a PC client application for their phones that will run
everywhere QT does. And that is quite a few places. As Nokia make the
server side of the SyncML in question (it is in their phone), they would
be in a fantastic position to know how to make a client. And they could
now make one client that runs on all platforms.

I think you have things a little back to front here, the phone is
normally a SyncML client not a server, the PC has to supply a (cut down)
server (or one uses an external source). With Nokia (and SE) this is
usually supplied for Symbian based phones on the PC by PC Suite which I
think you may be able to get working with wine as the code base is
pretty ancient. (The Nokia SDK apparently can be made to run in wine).
However, it only recognised Lotus and M$ apps so has limited usability
on Linux (or Windows for that matter). PC Suite is pretty bad at what it
is supposed to do....

Basic SyncML client support is pretty much standard on modern phones,
but for more sophisticated support a 3rd party client is usually required.
