More CalDAV enabled phones... starting with Symbian ?
By arnaudq on Aug 04, 2009
The iPhone might be the first CalDAV enabled phone but hopefully, it won't be long before other start to appear.
My colleague Maximilian Odendahl has been working on a CalDAV provider for the native Symbian OS Calendar application for a few months now.
He started with a standalone application that syncs up one or more CalDAV accounts using the native Calendar database API (using WebDAV Sync when appropriate).
This is already working great. Here is a screenshot of the native Calendar application, showing events pulled from our hosted preview server:
Now that Sun Microsystems has joined the Symbian foundation, Max will be able to fully integrate his CalDAV provider into the native application, for example to allow direct configuration of an account (image below is still a mockup):

(Can't resist to mention that after testing his client against 8 different servers, he found the next generation Sun Calendar Server to be the most standard compliant ...)
