That's a bummer. Any idea why RIM hasn't added the Calendar Synch to the redirector? It works quite well with the email, I'm sure they could certainly do something cool with the calendar as well.
I understand that the bluetooth synch will be batch based, but that said, I am hoping that it might be able to take advantage of the auto-synch that I see currently available for the cable. My thought would be that any time I come into range of the bluetooth link, it would self synch. Dunno if that's realistic or not, but it would be a nice option.
It will be interesting to see what happens now that Microsoft is set to put some competitive pressure on RIM with their new smartphones.
