This is less and less true; more and more devices "just do IP" which
from an implementation/engineering stand point makes sense. Setting up
an IP connection over blue-tooth may be one easy solution - it works
with Palms and WinCE devices. Then you can sync over IP to a
SyncML/OMA-DS service. Just install Funambol - this is how I test
syncronization, no carrier required [since it is obviously cheaper to
test with de-activated phones].
Funambol is ideal for commercial and home server use and possibly
Blackberry users on desktop, but is a little heavy weight for the home
desktop only

Agree, completely. But it is a functional solution. For better or
worse most LINUX development focuses on client/server solutions.

(and the demo web client is a bit limited). A good
alternative is egroupware (which has the added advantage of being in the
SuSE repositories, and not requiring the installation and configuration
of Tomcat or JBoss).

"alternative"? Syncing with eGroupware uses Funambol as the SyncML
provider and integrates via a connector; as does just about every Open
Source groupware server (OGo, Citadel, Zimbra, SOGo, etc...). Does the
eGroupware in the repo provide a pre-configured Funambol instance?

If you can get a local IP link between PC and device all things are
possible (puTTY or VNC on a symbian phone is a bit of fun, and there is
a rather handy free phoned based FTP server).
