Are there any phones/PDAs which can synchronise with Ubuntu nowadays?

True. I just thought it could be something to consider also when
choosing the new phone. I'm using a Nokia 6630 that I can't even get

To synchronize I only know SyncML, and is mentioned in several
software. I don't know is what phones use it. This site says almost
everyone are.
